My time at Lewisham College was very important. It gave me the set of skills I needed to develop into the chef I am today. I’d like to say a big thanks to all of my college lecturers.
My experience as a young chef and apprentice has been very exciting. It has informed me on how things run in a kitchen and has definitely broadened my knowledge and skills.
I’ve really enjoyed my apprenticeship, especially my sessions with my assessor who has given me great encouragement.
I really enjoy being able to work within a team during busy service as well as learning new practical skills. It’s also great to meet with my assessor and track my progress with her. It means that I always know where I’m at in regards to my apprenticeship.
