The Course:

This FREE 12-week training programme includes hands-on cooking and work placements in different food businesses - to include restaurants, cafes, bakeries and catering companies.  

You’ll leave with a Level 2 BTec qualification and Level 2 Food and Hygiene certificate - both valued by potential employers in the industry. 

The next How To Be A Chef course starts 18th September 2019 and is suitable for young people aged 16-25.  

Entry requirements focus on commitment, enthusiasm and motivation rather than previously-acquired qualification or academic success.
