The Professional Cookery Diploma at level 3 is specifically designed as advancement from the level 2 Professional Cookery.
Candidates will not normally be allowed to progress to level 3 without having first successfully achieved level 2. Most areas covered in level 2 are also covered by level 3; however, whereas the keyword at level 2 is ‘basic’, this changes to ‘complex’ for level 3. Candidates are already qualified chefs and this qualification is designed to ‘hone’ and ‘fine tune’ the skills learned whilst at level 2.
