Love working with food and working with a bigger team?

Chef de Parties are also known as station chefs or section chefs as they manage one particular area of the kitchen to ensure dishes go out on time and are up to scratch. In larger kitchens, the Chef de Partie may manage a small group of chefs.

On this Level 3 Chef de Partie apprenticeship, you'll get first-hand experience of this style of working, learning in real-time in the kitchen. Learn how to prepare and master the dishes to a high standard, whilst keeping your area clean and tidy and working as part of the larger kitchen too.
