Level 2 Commis Chef Standard - Apprenticeship

A commis chef is the most common starting position in many kitchens and in principal the most junior culinary role.

  • Course Description

    A commis chef prepares food and carries out basic cooking tasks under the supervision of a more senior chef. The primary objective of the commis chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. Therefore having the opportunity to experience, consider and value each section with a view to choosing an area where they feel most inspired. The learning journey of any chef will vary considerably from one individual to the next; however it is necessary to understand and have experience in the basics that this role provides in order to progress to any future senior chef role. Learners will be required to attend our Kings Lynn Campus one day a week to enhance their Knowledge Skills and Behaviours. A Commercial Trainer will also visit you within your workplace every 4-6 weeks, alongside the support from your employer.

  • Entry Requirements

    Applicants will normally have gained a minimum of 3-5 GCSEs (grade A-C) or equivalent, preferably English, mathematics and a science or relevant / appropriate experience.
