Welcome Cohort 11
A huge welcome from the Fifteen Cornwall team to the new group of apprentices who started on-site in the Fifteen Cornwall kitchen this week, on the next step of an action-packed year geared towards becoming a professional chef.
This is the 11th group of young people to start on the Fifteen Cornwall apprentice programme – we celebrate our 10th birthday this year – more on that coming soon!
What have they been doing up to now?
So far this year the group have been studying at Cornwall College since 11 January 2016, gaining their ‘Culinary Skills Certificate’ and being taken through our ‘Fifteen Preparation Programme‘.
What happens next?
The apprentices work for a full year in one-to-one training in the Fifteen Cornwall kitchen and towards a Professional Cookery NVQ Level 2 at Cornwall College.
Supported throughout by an intensive personal development programme of coaching and counselling, the young chefs also learn about food provenance through monthly sourcing trips and are trained in craft skills by artisan butchers, bakers and fish-merchants.
