“My work placement was very up-to-date and modern, and I worked alongside some lovely people. My biggest learning experience was learning Spanish and the different names of each local dish. By the end of it I could hold a basic conversation with people at my workplace.”
Some of our placements include:
- Front-of-house roles serving food and drink
- Kitchen roles assisting chefs, from chopping vegetables to plating up food
- Specialist areas of cookery, such as assisting pastry chefs
As each placement is unique our students might gain experience in a range of different areas, such as:
- Preparing a range of ingredients as instructed for use in a variety of dishes
- Using new and unusual ingredients to prepare local dishes
- Following hygiene, health and safety procedures whilst working in a busy kitchen environment
“Entering a kitchen full of international chefs can be daunting when you don’t speak a word of their language. To understand what they were asking me to do, I had to adapt to their way of doing things and think on my feet.”
“I was working at a tapas restaurant, where I usually worked alongside one or two chefs. I always showed my eagerness to lean, and ensured I was polite and punctual at every shift. I was shown how to do more advanced tasks quite quickly and I think that was down to my enthusiasm and willingness to learn new skills."
