This is one of the only full-time culinary arts courses to deliver culinary science at all levels of the curriculum alongside entrepreneurship studies.
The Professional Chef Diploma is supported and endorsed by the Craft Guild of Chefs, the British Culinary Federation, Master Chefs of Great Britain and the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts and is expertly taught by our award-winning culinary arts team.Our graduates have an excellent record of being offered top employment opportunities at the successful conclusion of their studies, which is one of the reasons why this is the premier full-time chef course in the UK.
Our teachers are currently planning for the safest ways to deliver this course from September. We have been delivering all of our courses online since the outbreak of Coronavirus in March 2020, and we are fully equipped to continue this for as long as is necessary. We hope to be able to deliver the course in a mixed format - blending online lessons with face-to-face teaching – as and when we feel that, on the basis of Government advice and our own risk assessments, it is safe to do so. The ratio of face-to-face teaching in our college buildings to online teaching will vary from course to course, so more specific information will be provided to you at enrolment.
Topics covered can include:
You will need to have completed Professional Chef - Level 1.
All applicants must have an initial assessment and interview to confirm that the course is suitable for them.
The course is assessed throughout the year with practical assignments and written tests.
If you will be aged 16, 17 or 18 on 31 August in the year you begin your course, and have been resident in the UK/EU/EEA for the past 3 years, it will be free. Some courses will have other costs associated, such as for materials and trips. Many of our students are eligible for financial support when studying at college – please click here for more information.
This course will help you to move on to higher level courses, such as Professional Chef - Level 3 or an apprenticeship.
