A Commis Chef works in a kitchen and is a basic level position, working under the supervision of higher level chefs. 

The Commis Chef will be expected to prepare foods and complete basic cooking tasks in a commercial kitchen. The apprentice will be working and learning in a fast-paced environment and will be given the opportunity to work in and learn about each section of a commercial kitchen. This will give them an insight into the different areas and help them decide which area they would like to work in going forward. 

The apprentice will be involved in preparing food for cooking, basic cooking of some foods, preparing crockery and cleaning the kitchen to a high standard. 

Following the level 2 apprenticeship, the apprentice can progress on to a level 3 qualification specialising in a chosen area which could lead to positions such as head chef or head of a department.

Assessment

The apprentice will be assessed to the apprenticeship standard using four complementary assessment methods. The assessment is synoptic, i.e. takes a view of the overall performance of the apprentice in their job. The assessment activities will be completed by the independent end assessor as follows: on demand test, practical observation, culinary challenge observation and a professional discussion. 

Once each element has been completed the overall grade is determined by the independent end point assessor. This grade will be based on the combination of performance in all assessment activities.
