Knowle West cookery school Square Food Foundation is currently recruiting for its 12-week How to be a Chef course for 16-25s which starts on 14 September.

It’s a hands-on course run in partnership with Bristol 24/7 which equips participants with the skills and experience to work in the hospitality sector – while cooking a wide range of dishes using huge variety of ingredients.

Students will leave with a Level 2 BTec and a Food Hygiene Certificate, both of which are valued by employers in the food industry

Current students on the spring/summer course have been to coffee brewers, a spice factory, a farm and taken part in a Bristol food tour alongside the cooking – with plenty of guest slots with outstanding Bristol chefs.

The course will finish on 8 December –  with a week’s break for half term (week of 24 October). Participants will need to commit to being at Square Food Foundation at The Park on Daventry Road, for two days a week for the entire length of the course (Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10am – 4pm).

There are also some other commitments such as cooking and serving at events for which your time will be paid. 

You will meet with lots of employers, and we will support you to find a job in your area of interest in the food industry.

The group is very small, with only eight places available which means you will get plenty of one-to-one attention from tutors and a personalised experience. It also means that you’ll need to be quick to secure your place and need to send your response by the end of Friday 12 August.

Square Food invites you to meet one of the tutors ahead of the course start, and have a chance to look at the kitchen where you would be working.

Charlotte Fife, the course lead, will be holding interviews on Wednesdays and Thursdays through July and August and a taster day – date to be announced – at Square Food Foundation, The Park, Daventry Rd, BS4 1DQ.  Alternatively, you are welcome to ring with any questions on 0117 462 2686
