Northern Ireland work-based training reform

As part of changes to apprenticeships in Northern Ireland, the design of new high-quality hospitality programmes that reflect the professional standards today’s industry needs is well underway.

To date, this development has produced new hospitality frameworks for both chef and hospitality pathways at levels 2 and 3, which can be viewed below:

The next stage, initially focused on the professional chef pathway, sees the development of a single qualification, covering the skills, knowledge and behaviours identified by employers in full, together with common assessment structures to include on-programme assessment and an end-point assessment. 

You are now invited to review the commis chef traineeship and feed any comments back to us by 20 April 2018. 

Please review the document and let us know:

  • Are you satisfied with the strategies within the framework?
  • If not, why not?
  • Any other comments you have regarding the commis chef framework

Please send your comments via email to NIOF@people1st.co.uk by 20 April 2018 at the latest.

This is your opportunity to have your say and make sure the new chef qualification and assessment meets industry needs.
