Our Big Fig Catering Project is running the Catering Experience in France, a course which provides the skills and experience needed to get into catering.
The course starts with 3 day sessions at the Big Fig working kitchen in Brighton and then continues in a work training placement for 2 weeks at Eco Chateau in France. The course will cover food safety, how to plan menus, essential knife skills, a wide range of food preparation and cooking techniques and the opportunity to achieve City and Guilds Level 1 Award in Introduction to the Hospitality Industry which includes the Food Safety Level 2.
On completing the course, we also provide volunteering, work placement opportunities and on-going support in Brighton to help learners into the catering career they want.
The course is fully funded if you meet the referral criteria and includes travel, accommodation and food in France. To participate you need to be 19 or over, experiencing barriers to work, interested in getting a career in catering, able to commit to the 3 week project ( 2 of these weeks being full time in France), a current valid passport (visa if required) and keenness and willingness to learn.
