As a chef you’d cook food and prepare ingredients as part of a team. You’ll need a cool head, as kitchens can be intense working environments. Most chefs start out as kitchen assistants and those with the right talent and sticking power can climb to the dizzying heights of head chef, where they create original dishes, set menus and look after the budget.

All of the tutors are helpful and make me feel comfortable. The course has helped me interact with people. I like working in different environments and plan to complete a level 3 course then go into employment.
