We've developed a 10 week programme giving students a total of 20 hours learning (covering a range of skills, including food, hygiene and knife safety) with a qualified tutor. The aim is to excite, develop and nurture young talent. As a college who offer catering as a full time option for school leavers, we have a responsibility to develop skills and train the next generation of chefs to enter an industry which, currently, has a major skills shortage and is in great need of new talent to carry the industry forward. Hertford Regional College develops student confidence, life and social skills that will empower them to cook and eat healthily. Completing this course will demonstrate the operations within a professional kitchen and will give the learner an insight into a future career within a catering environment.
This course is aimed at young people aged 13-16 with an interest in cookery.
Enrolment fee £120.00.
There will also be an additional cost of £10.00 per adult for a graduation three course dinner. This will be prepared and cooked by the student and served in our on-site restaurant, this will take place on week 10 of the course.
These fees are indicative of the 2022-23 costs and may be subject to change
Tuesday evenings 17.00 - 19.00 from 17/01/2023 - 28/03/2023. This course runs for 10 weeks.
