The Glasgow City Region Chef Academy is a new project that aims to get more people into the Hospitality and Food and Drink sector and to provide support for existing chefs and kitchen trades to upskill.

The eight councils across Glasgow City Region have joined forces to provide a new apprenticeship scheme to boost the hospitality sector and address a decline in trained staff.

Modern Apprenticeships at the Chef Academy

Our virtual Chef Academy will recruit an initial 40 unemployed young people and adults to take up new Modern Apprenticeship places within hospitality venues across the Region.

Over an 18-month programme, you’ll learn on the job the skills needed to work in fast paced kitchens and you’ll work towards a recognised qualification.

The Chef Academy Modern Apprentice vacancies are advertised on apprenticeship.scot

Or alternatively,  contact your local employability service or Skills Development Scotland – see details below.
