Do you want a career within the food & drink sector? Are you aged 16+? Are you an employer looking for a specialist training provider for either new employees or to invest and/or up skill your current workforce.
With support from the Chef Benson-Smith Academy, you’ll work towards the new government standards whether you want to be a Chef, a front of house team member, a supervisor, manager, a customer service specialist, a baker or work within food production and manufacturing. We can help both the learner and the employer to develop successful apprenticeship programmes from Level 2 up to Management level. Apprenticeships are a great way to invest in current staff by progressing individuals onto the new supervisory or management standards or for those that need that up skilling, professional development and recognition.
Work in a real kitchen
You'll learn on the job in a successful Hotel, Restaurant or equivalent food business near you. You'll usually work 39 hours a week (depending on your age and employer) and earn at least the government base rate.
