Programme Purpose

This programme consists of alternating phases of on-the-job and off-the-job training- a model which provides for the integration of the knowledge and skills acquired on and off the job. The apprentice will train in large volume, fine or casual settings over 2 years. Over the 2 year period the apprentice will also train in a further education and training setting. The aim of both on-the-job and off-the-job training is to provide the apprentice with knowledge and skills required for full competency in the role of Commis Chef; in line with the occupation profile of Commis Chef. Assessment of knowledge takes place at scheduled times and involves theory exams. Assessment of competency takes place at scheduled times and involves skills demonstrations and practical exams. Instructors and work place mentors evaluate practical skills, working practices and behaviours. In year two apprentices progress to the award stage - on the basis of the result of assessment from stage 1. Award Stage assessment confirms full competency in the role of Commis Chef. Where assessment results confirm full competency in this role, the apprentice will achieve a QQI Advanced Certificate.
