Develop strong working relationships and practical cookery skills as an apprentice through a combination of on-the-job training at your workplace and skills development training delivered at TasTAFE.

This qualification will provide you with the skills and knowledge you’ll need as a commercial cook working in a supervisory or team leader role in a commercial kitchen.

In this qualification, you will have the opportunity to develop your cookery skills across a range of cuisines and techniques, and prepare yourself for a cookery career with global potential!

As well as polishing your skills in preparing a wide range of dishes, you’ll learn about all areas of kitchen management. You’ll gain valuable knowledge and experience in leading and managing people and teams, and in providing a coaching role to others in kitchen-related job skills.

You’ll also learn how to coordinate and monitor work operations, and plan, cost and manage finances within a set budget. Throughout your qualification, you’ll also learn how to effectively implement and monitor environmentally sustainable work practices and work health and safety procedures within the commercial kitchen context.

On successful completion of this course, you'll be ready to take on leadership roles at any food establishment or culinary institution within the Hospitality industry. The world is your (tasty) oyster!

This course is only available as an Australian Apprenticeship. You must have employment as an apprentice to enrol in this qualification.
