You do not need to have any experience as full training will be provided as part of the Apprenticeship. This is ideal for a school leaver or someone wanting a career change. Apprenticeships are for everyone regardless of age!

A commis chef prepares food and carries out basic cooking tasks under the supervision of a more senior chef. The primary objective of the commis chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. Over a 12 – 18-month period you will be trained to become a fully Qualified Commis Chef. What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a funded programme where an individual learns new skills, knowledge and behaviours in a chosen sector. An apprenticeship will enable you to work and earn a wage whilst developing and gaining new skills as an employee.

Alongside your day to day duties, you will complete the Commis Chef Level 2 Apprenticeship. You will be supported through this qualification by your Personal Development Coach who will conduct review meetings every 4-6 weeks, in addition you will have the opportunity to attend workshops throughout your Apprenticeship."
