Training Course Content

What I'll Learn

Creating a true culinary experience starts and ends in the mind; your skills are simply the tools that will bring that vision to reality.

On this programme, you will learn to prepare and cook food through traditional methods such as boiling, braising, roasting, frying etc. These skills will be vital in building a career in any professional kitchen, anywhere in the world.

However, what sets this programme apart from others is the emphasis we place on the fundamentals of understanding ingredients and exploring their tastes, flavours and fusions. Heston Blumenthal has identified two critical attributes for working in this field: Restless Perfectionism and Creative Curiosity. Inspired by these critical attributes, you will be provided with a rich variety of learning experiences, including:

  • practical exploration
  • food science experiments
  • work and industry experience
  • customer facing activity
  • employer-led projects

As well as linking with the Fat Duck Group's expertise, you will benefit from the Activate Learning Attributes curriculum, which will help you develop the key characteristics and skills employers are looking for in potential employees. This will be achieved through one-to-one support sessions.

If you are still working towards gaining GCSEs in English or maths, or if you need help developing your digital skills, we can help with that too.
