D&D rolls out chef training programme
D&D London has announced it will be permanently rolling out its chef training programme.
The news follows the success of D&D’s Summer School in July, which saw learners train and begin careers in the hospitality sector, following a staffing crisis within the industry.
In partnership with Electric Mayonnaise, D&D has been working on a long-term commitment to secure employment for people with little or no previous experience looking to enter kitchens, while giving a much-needed boost to staffing numbers nationwide.
Helping people forge skilled and successful careers in kitchens, the course will train people who are long-term unemployed, alongside charities such as Crisis and Thames Reach.
Modules will include basic cooking, organisational skills and food hygiene, with a focus on additional skills such as teamwork, task and time management and effective communication.
