Course Overview

A chef de partie is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen. This type of chef usually manages a small team of workers, which they must keep organised so that dishes go out on time and the work area remains clean and orderly. However, in smaller kitchens, a chef de partie may work independently as the only person in the section. Also known as a station or section chef, the chef de partie reports to the senior chef and has a very important role in any kitchen. This apprenticeship is for those who prepare, cook and finish complex dishes. Progression for this apprentice would be to the senior chef culinary arts apprenticeship at level 4 to develop further their management skills.
