If you have a real passion or are interested in furthering your knowledge, skills and career in the hospitality industry, then this course is for you.

The Chef de Partie Level 3 apprenticeship is for learners working in a wide range of hospitality settings across the service and commercial sectors.

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, for example, sauces, pastries or fish. 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.

The learning journey of any chef will vary from one chef to the next but should always allow an apprentice to understand and have experience in managing other and producing food items in line with organisational specification in order to progress to any future senior chef role.

State of the art facilities, expert staff and fantastic industry links are all utilised to offer an exciting and dynamic experience.

Studying at Cornwall College gave George the skills he needed to follow his passion and become an executive chef on board a cruise liner.

"The course has taken me all over the world cooking. Until recently I was Executive Chef on a 5 star cruise liner and here I got to create my own menus, meet and cook for appreciative people.

Going to college gave me the tools to travel around the world and to work with and teach different nationalities. I would highly recommend it and cruise ships are a great way to do what you love whilst seeing different countries. "
