10 years: What does it mean?

10 years; nearly three-quarters of a million diners served, 180 young people in need of a second change trained as apprentice chefs, 112 graduates and £30m sales generated with 100% of the profits going back into the development of young people and suppliers from Cornwall, that’s what Jamie Oliver came to Cornwall to celebrate as restaurant and social enterprise Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall hosted a day of 10th birthday festivities at it’s restaurant on Watergate Bay, North Cornwall during it’s 10th anniversary year.

Stats – 10 years on….

  • 184 apprentices have been recruited to our kitchen – vast majority unemployed and untrained
  • 50% of trainees recruited were suffering from mental health problems
  • 40% of trainees had behavioural problems including violent and/or offending behavior and/or substance misuse
  • 112 Chefs have completed the Fifteen Cornwall Apprentice Programme
  • 91% of graduates remain employed
  • 80% are still working as chefs
  • Business created 70 year-round jobs in hospitality
  • Over £22 million into the Cornish economy through wages and food-spend
  • Over £4 million invested in training and support of disadvantaged young people (restaurant profits topped up by independent funding)

The Apprentice scheme

The Apprenticeship Programme consists of 3 months full-time training at Cornwall College, 4 weeks work experience in high quality kitchens and one year in the Fifteen Cornwall kitchen. Key to its success is a unique welfare support programme that helps young people access the programme, stay onboard and overcome any personal barriers. Recruitment is targeted towards young people with biggest barriers to progression. To apply, candidates must live in Cornwall; must be between 16 and 24; and must not be in employment, education or training. This year’s graduates bring to 180-plus the number of young chefs the foundation and Fifteen have successfully trained. Some have found other jobs, usually in catering, but over 80% are still cheffing, many in prestigious establishments. That’s a lot of young lives set on a different course.
