This course is perfect if you love to cook, have a creative flair and want to further develop your cooking skills to move into a supervisory role in a professional kitchen.
You’ll learn advanced cookery techniques and combine interesting ingredients and flavours to create new dishes and menus. You’ll learn supervisory skills, as well as further developing your knowledge of food hygiene and health and safety within the catering and hospitality industry.
You can expect to put your skills into practice by supervising service in our brand new commercial restaurant in the heart of Nottingham at our City Hub campus (opening early 2021), serving a variety of lunch and dinner menus, including à la carte, prix fixé and events, to a wide range of customers. You will experience industry work placements and meet with professional and renowned chefs to learn from the best. There’s lots of hands-on cooking time, plus time spent researching and learning the theory of catering.
