Summary

A Chef de Partie is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen. This type of chef usually manages a small team of workers, which they must keep organised so that dishes go out on time and the work area remains clean and orderly. However, in smaller kitchens a chef de partie may work independently as the only person in their section. Also known as a station or section chef, the chef de partie reports to the senior chef and has a very important role in any kitchen.

Course Content includes:

  • Industry and food trends, customer preferences and environmental factors that influence dishes and menus.
  • Food safety practices and procedures to ensure safe preparation and cooking of food.
  • How to work with people from a wide range of backgrounds and cultures
  • Understand the principles of supply chain management
  • Brief, coach and motivate others to produce high quality dishes and menu items which are delivered on time and to standard.
  • Advocate the importance of working safely and legally in the best interest of all people.

Fees

Apprenticeship course fees are subject to the age of the apprentice, and the size of the company

For employer’s with less than 50 employees who do not pay the apprenticeship levy and who take on an apprentice who is aged between 16-18 at the start of their apprenticeship, there will be no direct cost and the full training costs will be covered by Government funding. If the apprentice is aged 19+ the government partially subsides the training costs and the employer will need to pay 5% of the costs. In the case of this course, the fee would be £450.

For an employer with more than 50 employees a 5% charge will be implemented regardless of the age of the apprentice which in this case would be £450.

A levy paying company will pay the full cost of the apprenticeship from their levy account which in this case would amount to £9000.

Please note that course fees are to be paid by the employer and apprentices cannot be asked to make a financial contribution toward their training.
