James is thrilled to have been in at the start on an exciting initiative for young chefs in the regions: the Yorkshire Chefs’ Certificate.
Working with Hull College’s School of Hospitality and Catering, he has developed a scheme which gives those on the college’s Level 3 Professional Cookery programme the chance to work alongside and learn from some of the best local chefs, including James himself.
Students working at ‘Gold’ standard on the Level 3 programme will be able to apply to take part in the Yorkshire Chefs’ Certificate scheme alongside their vocational qualification as part of their study programme.
It will develop and assess their knowledge and understanding of the industry and practical skills, and give them hands-on work experience at different restaurants in the region. Successful candidates will also compete in a ‘cook-off’, with some great prizes. For more information, please visit:
