Your pathway to success

Becoming a qualified professional cook is a skill for life and can open doors to a long and rewarding career. As a professional cook you could work in a variety of areas, for example working in hotels, restaurants, pubs, bars and nightclubs, contract catering, holiday centres and school catering. You could also own your own cookery business.

There is great scope to specialise within the catering industry. The hotel and catering industry as a whole is a big employer and contributes around £30bn to the English economy each year, with the restaurant industry alone employing two thirds of a million people.      

Completing a Professional Cookery Advanced Level Apprenticeship could lead to further opportunities, as the catering industry expands and employers continue to have been supporting Apprentices in the hospitality and catering sectors for a number of years.
