Level 6 Certificate in Culinary Skills - 60 Credits

This is a part-time course that will be delivered with a blended learning approach - 90% onsite and 10% online.
Onsite will be 2 days per week during the daytime on Wednesday and Thursday.
Classes start on 22nd Sept.

This programme is designed to enable the learner find employment at entry level in the Hospitality and Food sector. The programme is largely skills based. It will equip the learner to a standard that will give him or her the necessary skills to begin a professional career in Culinary Arts and the ability to take up work in a professional kitchen environment. As an entry level programme, the skills acquired will be sufficient to enable the learner to embark on his or her culinary career.

The modules are designed to cover the skills required in professional practice to ensure that the learner can cope with the fast-paced environment of a commercial kitchen at a junior or trainee level. The learning is further enhanced with immersion in the work place through the work-based element of the program. Learners will also acquire key transferrable skills in HACCP and manual handling which is a desired requirement of the employer.
