Hospitality Chef de Partie Apprenticeship, Level 2

Course overview

A Chef de Partie is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen. This type of chef usually manages a small team of workers, which they must keep organised so that dishes go out on time and the work area remains clean and orderly. However, in smaller kitchens a chef de partie may work independently as the only person in their section. Also known as a station or section chef, the chef de partie reports to the senior chef and has a very important role in any kitchen.

The Hospitality Chef de Partie, Level 3 (standard) will give apprentices the opportunity to develop the following skills, knowledge and behaviour:

• Culinary
• Food safety
• People
• Business

Entry requirements

The entry requirements for this apprenticeship will be set by the employer.

How will I be assessed?

The End Point Assessment (EPA) can only be triggered after 12 months of starting the apprenticeship and is dependent on when the employer and training provider decide the apprentice is ready. EPA is typically expected to conclude within 3 months. The employer has the final decision to progress the apprentice to EPA. The apprentice and training provider should feel confident the learning outcomes have been achieved.

The EPA consists of three elements, all of which may be completed online. All assessment methods need to be passed. Each assessment method should directly assess the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the Standard. The assessor has the final decision.

What can I do next

Progression from this apprenticeship is expected to be into a senior culinary chef role.
