What our students say
Nathan, Professional Cookery Level 3

"I chose Professional Cookery because I wanted to expand my knowledge and learn to cook at a professional level. I enjoyed doing the Level 2, and passing that course allowed me to progress to Level 3 and to get a job in the industry. With my qualifications I would like to work in the fine dining side of hospitality."
