Level 2 Commis Chef Apprenticeship
Aspire Training Team are offering a unique and tailored Commis Chef Apprenticeship specifically designed for the Early Years and Schools sector. This apprenticeship will focus on the nutritionally balanced diet children need and the recipes and menus that are attractive to them.
Working as a commis chef is a great way of getting started in a kitchen; while it’s the most junior cookery role it provides a means of learning a range of key skills on the job.
A commis chef prepares food and carries out basic cooking tasks under the supervision of a more senior chef. A primary objective of the commis chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. This gives you the opportunity to experience, consider and value each section with a view to choosing an area where they feel most inspired.
Sustainability is a core theme of this apprenticeship including how meals are prepped and learning about the importance of local and ethical sourcing.
- Applying correct preparation and selection methods when using meat, poultry, fish and vegetables.
- Maintaining a clean and hygienic kitchen environment.
- Recognising risks in the working environment.
- Developing good working relationships with the team and colleagues.

The learning journey of a chef will vary considerably from one individual to the next; however, it is the range of experiences in the basics gained in this role that provide the opportunities to progress to any future senior chef role.

You will work alongside the catering manager, ensuring the freshest and best quality produce is available to your kitchen. You will build on your knowledge and skills covering techniques such as preparing and cooking stocks, soups and sauces, a variety of dishes and desserts, as well as pastry and baking products.
