Cooking – Training Kitchen

Ready, steady, COOK!

Budding Masterchefs prepare healthy, nutritious hot meals and desserts while learning about the nutritional value of foods, and how to be hygienic in the kitchen. The Training Kitchen is available to all our Members during Tuesdays Junior Sessions and Monday and Wednesdays Senior Sessions.

Yum! What time are we eating?

Life Skills Training

We also run structured cooking programmes for schools, colleges, and charities working with young people. These programmes go into more depth about nutrition and food hygiene, and also build up important skills like teamwork, time management and self-reliance.

There is also an opportunity for young people to work towards a Level 1 and Level 2 AQA in subjects such as Food Preparation, Nutrition, Customer Service, and more. These are formal qualifications which can be included on a young person’s CV, or for applying for further education courses.

If you work with young people and would like to get involved, please send us a message using the Contact Us form below.
