You will also learn about employee rights and responsibilities, personal, learning and thinking skills and depending on which area of training you undertake, some of this learning may take place in college.
What subjects will I study?
Apprentice – Level 2
There are two possible routes for you to follow: Professional Cook or Front of House/Multi Skills. Both options will allow you to progress to a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship.

At this level you will be taking more responsibility in the workplace and may be supervising others. You will learn more about your chosen pathway and the options open to you in the workplace.
