This Apprenticeship programme has been designed for individuals who are responsible for preparing food and carrying out basic cooking tasks in every section of a kitchen under the supervision of a senior chef. The Standard is based on short and concise professional standards that have been set by employers.

Role Profile

A commis chef is a common starting position in many kitchens and, in principle, the most junior culinary role. The primary objective of the commis chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. The learning journey of a chef will vary considerably depending on the needs of individuals and organisations; however, it is necessary to understand and have experience in the basics that this role provides in order to progress to any future senior chef role.
