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.

Units include:

Mandatory Units
• Develop productive working relationships with colleagues
• Maintain the health, safety and security of the working environment
• Maintain food safety when storing, preparing and cooking food


Optional Units may include:

• A Technical Certificate

• You must be aged 16 or over, not in full-time education or training and have been resident in the UK / EEA for at least three years
• Candidates are required to have successfully completed the Professional Cookery Diploma at level 2. In addition, they will be expected to be able to work at a minimum of Level 1 in Numeracy and Literacy
• A suitable work placement

How will I be assessed?
This qualification is delivered entirely in the workplace and the only requirement for college attendance will be to sit various short courses offered to the learner at various stages throughout their apprenticeship.

How long will it take to complete?
The duration of an Apprenticeship can vary depending on the individual’s needs but candidates should be looking towards a minimum of 18 months duration to complete the full apprenticeship framework.

What’s next after the Apprenticeship?
• Career progression within their current employment
• Foundation degree in Hospitality Studies

Fees for the 2013/14 academic year are currently under review. Figures given below are indicative only and subject to change. Fees will be posted here as soon as they become available.

For those candidates aged 16-18 there will be no cost to the employer.  For apprentices aged 19 and over, there will be a one-off administration fee to the employer of £350.
