National Apprenticeship Week 2019 is 4 to 8 March. The theme is Blaze a Trail. Jack Pearce is blazing a trail in the world of fine dining. He's going from strength to strength, first as an apprentice at a renowned restaurant and now as a Chef de Partie.

Jack com­plet­ed his pro­fes­sion­al cook­ery appren­tice­ship at the award-win­ning World Ser­vice restau­rant with Not­ting­ham Col­lege in 2017. Jack has since con­tin­ued his career in the kitchen, first as a Com­mis Chef and now as a Chef de Par­tie at World Ser­vice. He’s aim­ing high and work­ing his way up in the indus­try, and already has an award under his belt.

I real­ly enjoyed my appren­tice­ship and I learnt so much. I found that I was always doing new things. I’ve always been real­ly pas­sion­ate about becom­ing a chef, so learn­ing on the job, whilst doing my appren­tice­ship was ide­al for me. 

 — Jack Pearce

In Jan­u­ary 2019, Jack won the Best Young Tal­ent (Back of House) award at the Not­ting­ham Restau­rant & Bar awards, held at Col­wick Hall.

I was real­ly hap­py when I won the award and it’s opened a lot of doors for me. 

 — Jack

We asked Jack for a few words about his asses­sor at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, Mark. He said: Thanks for all the train­ing and sup­port at Col­lege. I could­n’t have done it with­out you!”
