Are you looking to begin or enhance your career in the diverse catering and hospitality industries? This course has been specially designed to further develop your culinary skills, whether you are an experienced chef or new to catering. It is ideal if you are progressing from a relevant Level 1 hospitality and catering course, or from professional experience progressing onto a Level 1 Apprenticeship programme.
You will gain practical knowledge in a range of areas, learning to prepare, cook and present fish and shellfish, meat, poultry and game, vegetable dishes, sauces and dressings, patisserie, fermented goods and desserts. You will also look at gastronomy and food culture.
The course is currently being offered as part of the hospitality and catering programme, alongside the VRQ Level 1 Diploma in Professional Food and Beverage Service. This allows you to gain two professional qualifications, one focusing on hospitality and one focusing on cookery skills. You will be able to enjoy the benefits of a full-time course, whilst gaining practical work skills in the College’s excellent kitchen and restaurant facilities.
