Commis Chef, Apprenticeship
If you work in a restaurant or catering outlets and cook from predominantly fresh and raw ingredients, this new Level 2 Commis Chef Apprenticeship is for you.
You will work towards developing your skills and knowledge to prepare for the final assessment. This could include cooking meat, fish and poultry dishes, and other culinary skills such as making soups and sauces, either in specialist, ethnic or fine dining restaurants.
How will I be assessed?
We’ll assess your practical skills and observe you at work. Your personal assessor will visit you at work to ensure you’re on target for your qualifications. There will also be an end-point theory and practical assessment.
What could I do after this course?
After this apprenticeship, you will be qualified to take on a number of catering roles. Or you could enhance your skills and qualifications by progressing to Level 3.
This qualification is designed for learners wanting to progress into careers within a catering setting as a commis chef at a one rosette level. You don’t need any formal qualifications, but you will be assessed to ensure you are proficient in English and maths at Level 1. You will also need to be in relevant employment, but we can help you find this.
