Chef Production Cooking (Senior) - Advanced Apprenticeship
Course Code: WF00048
Study level: Apprenticeship
Next available course:
Senior production chefs strive to produce customers’ meals consistently to perfection according to predetermined specifications. They have the ability to work independently and lead a team in often hot and highly challenging kitchen environments.
Production Chefs are likely to work in organisations where brands, recipes and menus have been created by a central development team.
Production chefs and their teams work quickly and efficiently, producing food often in high volumes, which is repeated day after day, requiring energy, highly methodical organisational skills and attention to detail. This is also suitable for senior fish fryers.
These vary from employer to employer. The typical requirements are 5 GCSEs at grade 4/C or higher. You should also have completed a relevant catering Qualification or Apprenticeship at Level 2.
