Our FoodWorks Studinees

Our Studenees

Our tailor-made training packages are accessible using pictures, photographs and symbols to support the practical kitchen-based cooking sessions. And we always make sure that our trainees are having a good time as they learn.

Trainees are encouraged to take a full role in food planning and preparation as well as serving customers and managing the till.

Our staff team are friendly and knowledgeable and their aim is to make sure every one of our trainees gets the most from their time at Food Works, including support with planning their next steps once they graduate.

Every trainee has a portfolio that tracks their progress through the multi-skilled catering and hospitality modules and each achievement is recognised and celebrated with a series of awards and certificates.
