Course description

Professional Culinary Arts Level 3

Culinary courses for curious cooks developed in partnership with Heston Blumenthal and The Fat Duck Group.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Applicants for the Level 3 programme will need to have completed a Level 2 qualification in chef's skills or have a minimum of three years' relevant work experience in a quality establishment.

They will normally have at least five GCSEs at Grade 4 (C) or above (including some subjects related to the proposed area of study) and the willingness to study for an additional Level 2 qualification in English and/or Maths.

Applicants will be invited to attend an interview and complete an internal assessment. All students will have their literacy and numeracy needs supported within the programme.

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 build on your existing skills and knowledge. You will further your understanding of preparing and cooking stocks, meat and offal, fish and shellfish and desserts. You will also expand your knowledge of the legal and social responsibilities in professional kitchens. 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 Curiousity. To find out more about how these attributes can benefit you and how we develop them, click on the links on the right.

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.
