Apprentices are paid a wage by the employer.  Your employer is required to give you a contract of employment, which will include holiday entitlement and all other benefits. Your job role should provide you with the opportunities to develop the Standard’s skills, knowledge, and behaviours.

All applicants will be interviewed and complete an initial assessment for maths and English and the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to become a professional Production Chef. The offer of a place on the course is subject to the outcomes of initial assessment, which will be taken at the College as part of the admissions process.

End Point Assessment

We want you to achieve to the very best of your ability at CRC. To make this happen we offer both learning and personal support by specialist staff tailored to meet your specific needs.

There are three stages of assessment:

1. On-programme stage – Formal observations and knowledge tests
2. Gateway stage - successful completion of the Standards knowledge, skills and behaviours, functional skills/GCSEs and off the job training hours
3. End-point assessment (graded). On demand test, Practical observation, and professional discussion completed by an external examiner.

This qualification is delivered in your workplace. This will develop the skills set, knowledge-based elements of the Apprenticeship, Values and Behaviours, Functional Skills and meet the 20% off the job training.

Functional skills/GCSEs are delivered and assessed in a variety of ways at college, with flexibility, relating to your employer and the service industry sector.
