Kitchen Services

This is an ideal SVQ for kitchen porters looking for more responsibility or young Chef's / Cooks looking to start a career in catering. The SVQ offers the Trainee the opportunity to learn and understand the requirements for the basic preparation and cooking of Foods.

Health and Safety is an important part of any industry these days and particularly so in a working Kitchen where there are hot plates, Gas Cookers, Knives, Cutting Equipment and many more.

The trainees will be taught how to use equipment correctly and safely in order that they protect themselves and each other.

The SCQF Level 5 provides a selection of units which the Head Chef can choose for you in order that what you learn is in keeping with what your establishment requires.
