Professional Cookery Apprenticeship at Rosemary Schrager Cookery School

Course description



A young person completing an apprenticeship would gain a level 2 QCF NVQ qualfication. Our Apprenticeship Programme blends working and learning so you will be supported by both your employer and Rosemary Shrager’s Cookery School. We carefully select employers committed to this style of training and work together to help you become a highly employable, young chef.

We have employers committed to the programme in and around Tunbridge Wells and we will match you to an appropriate employer. There will be a week of work experience at your future place of work before either of you commit to the apprenticeship.

You should expect to work for a minimum of 30 hours a week for the duration of the programme. Each apprentice will receive at least the minimum wage, (although we do encourage a higher contribution for the work that is done). Our chef tutor will visit you regularly at your place of work to ensure you are covering the course appropriately and work with you to develop your skills.

You will also join us at the cookery school on a regular basis. Before you start your formal employment, there will be a week of basic training (including knife skills, sauces, bread making, kitchen discipline and food hygiene). This will give you the confidence to begin work in a professional kitchen.

You will then return a month later to hone those, and other skills, over a two day period. We will invite you to take a Master Class every month for the following 10 months, including some with Rosemary Shrager.
