Six aspiring chefs and food entrepreneurs have recently graduated with an internationally recognised chef qualification from the White Pepper Chef Academy. The graduates, including midlife career changers and gap year students, have successfully gained the skills to work in a professional kitchen or start their own food business.
According to the London School of Business & Finance, nearly half of UK employees are looking for a career change. The White Pepper graduates are a real-life example of how people can make a career change at any age. The budding chefs have learnt how to bake, butcher, fillet and chop, and are receiving ongoing careers support from the Chef Academy.
Cindy, 45, who graduated from the course with a distinction, says: “It saved the expense of going to a London cookery school. I feel much more confident in all of the skills we’ve covered, and it’s nice knowing that the support is there even once the course has finished, as very few cookery schools offer so much help.”
The course, which is accredited by the Confederation of Tourism & Hospitality, is running again in February, July and September 2016. To find out more about the course, call 01202 280050 or register your interest to find out more.
