Level 2

Course Overview

Commis chef is the starting point in most kitchens. On your apprenticeship, you will spend a minimum of 30 hours working in industry and one day a week at college. In college, you will spend time in the kitchens with our chef lecturers developing your cooking skills and also working on your English and maths portfolios if required.
All apprentices will also get the chance to develop hot and cold desserts, produce cakes, biscuits and bread. By the end of your apprenticeship, you will have developed the correct techniques with knives and how to use a variety of kitchen tools and equipment. In the modern kitchen it is important to accommodate a range of specialist diets and understand the risks of allergies.
This apprenticeship will teach you the basic skills you need to be a commis chef in a busy kitchen covering all stations. You will learn how to prepare, cook and finish basic dishes, including fish and shellfish, poultry, meat and game, as well as learning to prepare vegetables. You will spend time mastering the skills required to make stocks and sauces, soups and egg dishes.
An important element of your apprenticeship will be understanding health, safety and security in the workplace and waste management. All chefs need to plan a menu, budget it and understand supply management. A well-run kitchen involves teamwork and this is a key part of your apprenticeship, as well as understanding the expected professional behaviour in the industry.
