    What is the programme about?
    The traineeship is designed to enable chefs to learn on the job while formalising their training on a day release basis in college. It is the first programme of its kind to offer the potential of a qualification in Professional Cookery from a work based learning programme, with minimum time required away from the workplace. This programme is based on a solid foundation of practical culinary skills and techniques reinforced by a formal academic qualification.

    Trainees work full-time as chefs and attend college one fixed day a week, with a one week period of college in September and June in stage one. Employers support the trainees in paid employment for the duration of the programme and nominate a dedicated mentor to support the trainee. All work based learning is supported by the academic programme.

    Fáilte Ireland will contribute to the tuition and registration fees for this programme, however, colleges may require additional payment towards the cost of student services, uniforms, books and certain training modules.

    Who is the programme suited to?
    This two year National Chef Traineeship is designed for aspiring chefs with a creative passion and flair for working with food in the tourism industry.
