A senior production chef is an important supervisory role in any kitchen. In this role you could be leading a team or supporting the head chef. Working in a large or small establishment you’ll have accountability for the day to day running of a kitchen service, producing and monitoring consistently high food standards, as well as ensuring legislation and health and safety are adhered to. This is an incredibly varied role, and you could find yourself working in all manner of kitchen environments, including, schools, hospitals, care homes, high street casual dining or pub kitchens.
Employers will set their own requirements, usually you’ll be expected to have a relevant level 2 qualification, or a minimum of 12 months industry experience.
This apprenticeship will last at least 12 months.
This is a level 3 apprenticeship – which is equivalent to 2 A Level Passes. Apprenticeships are nationally recognised qualifications that are highly valued by employers.
An apprenticeship gives you the opportunity to gain a nationally recognised qualification while developing your skills and experience in a full-time paid job.
During the apprenticeship you will have day to day support from your employer and have a dedicated Remit Development Coach who will visit you in your workplace to give regular 1-2-1 training and support
The final, end point assessment is completed in the last few months of the apprenticeship. It is based on;
a portfolio – presented towards the end of the apprenticeship, containing evidence from real work projects which have been completed during the apprenticeship
a project – you would undertake a business-related project over a one-week period away from the day to day workplace
your employer would write you a reference
a structured interview with an assessor – giving you the chance to discuss what has been presented in the portfolio and the project as well as looking at how it has been produced
