This course is designed for those who wish to pursue a career in the hospitality and catering industry. It provides a strong grounding in food and beverage skills with emphasis on building a culinary portfolio of dishes across a range of taught units. You will build on the knowledge and skills gained at Level 1 and further develop skills in time management, health, safety and hygiene, and many other technical skills required to develop you into an industry ready chef. The course also features units on the broader hospitality industry which look at customer care skills, food service, healthy eating, menu planning, development of recipes and cost analysis. You will gain an understanding of how these skills can be applied by practising in our state of the art training kitchens and restaurant, cooking and serving food to up to 40 customers a day.
