West Cheshire College is offering anybody looking to develop a career as a Chef all the ingredients for success through an Apprenticeship.

The College currently has seven Professional Cookery Apprenticeships which are ideal for anybody looking to gain the right skills and experience to become a Chef.

Current vacancies are at Chester hotels DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Old Hall Country Club and Spa, Mill Hotel and Spa and The White Horse Inn; as well as Willington Hall and George and the Dragon Hotel both in Tarvin and The Red Fox Indian Cuisine in Tarporley.

Lee Davies, Work-based Learning Co-ordinator in Hospitality and Catering at West Cheshire College, said: “We have a number of exciting opportunities for people to work in fantastic restaurants and pubs around the region.

“Individuals completing an Apprenticeship are able to gain valuable experience within the workplace as well as excellent training at College which helps them to develop their skills and build their confidence.

“Our hospitality and catering Apprenticeships are hugely successful with many Apprentices going on to secure permanent employment after completing their training.”

George Wheeler, 22, from Chester completed an Apprenticeship in Hospitality and Catering at West Cheshire College working in the College’s catering facilities. He has since progressed to become a Head Chef at the Austrian ski resort of St Anton.

George said: “I believe that the skills and experience gained form my Apprenticeship helped me to secure my job. I had to go through a fairly intensive interview process but the fact that I had learnt so many different skills both technical and personally proved to be invaluable for me.”
