An Apprenticeship is a perfect choice if you want to continue your studies and develop your skills, knowledge and behaviours in a specific industry, while also earning a salary in full-time employment; kickstarting your long-term career path.

A Chef de Partie is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen. This type of chef usually manages a small team of workers, which they must keep organised so that dishes go out on time and the work area remains clean and orderly. However, in smaller kitchens a Chef de Partie may work independently as the only person in their section. Also known as a station or section chef, the Chef de Partie reports to the Senior Chef and has a very important role in any kitchen.

As an apprentice you will attend College one day a week to develop your skills, knowledge and behaviours as a Chef de Partie. You will also be expected to undertake regular home study on this course.
