Video: meet our 2016 graduates + hear their stories
Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall is a social enterprise that uses the magic of food to give unemployed young people the chance at a better future. Every year the restaurant recruits people aged between 18-25 and trains them to become professional chefs through our unique apprentice programme. They’re taught to love and respect food, learning everything from traditional bakery and butchery to the finest pastry skills.
In this video you meet Cohort 10 who graduated from the scheme in May 2016. Over the coming weeks we’ll share individual stories with you including the journey so far, and where they’ll be heading to on the next steps.
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.
