In Brief

Start Date / Duration

This course starts in September 2024 and will be completed in one year.

Entry requirements

You will need to hold two GCSEs at grade 2 or above including English and a positive school report.

You will achieve

Level 1 Introduction to Culinary Skills and Hospitality Service.

Course overview

This course is ideal for you if you are interested in the hospitality and catering industry and  want to develop your core cookery skills.

Course content

In the kitchens, you will learn how to prepare and cook meat, fish and poultry dishes. Alongside this, you will develop your making of soups, stocks, sauces and the preparation of vegetables.

Once you have mastered your core cookery skills, you will then develop them further by looking at different cookery methods including boiling, poaching and steaming, stewing and braising, baking, roasting, and grilling.

Lessons take place in our kitchens that are designed to replicate industry kitchens. While this course is very practical, theory elements will underpin the skills you learn in practical lessons for example teaching you about food safety, hygiene and healthy eating.

We run a very professional department and your uniform and equipment is integral to that professionalism.

You will be given a list of the equipment and uniform you will be expected to provide, but you may be able to purchase this through applying to the College’s Learner Support Fund. We use a local supplier who gives a good discount to all our students.

Upon completion, you could progress onto further study such as our Level 2 Culinary Skills or  Level 2 Certificate in Food Preparation and Cookery courses.
