About the Culinary Pre-Apprenticeship Program
Since 2014 the Unemployed Help Centre has developed a successful teaching model that integrates basic cooking techniques and knowledge. The program will venture beyond the classic style of cuisine and explore a more intrinsic approach to cooking. Along with the combined theoretical and corresponding hands-on practical experience, the students will engage in open discussions with local chefs and like-minded professionals to further enhance their experience.
The course will explore in detail, safe knife skills, kitchen sanitation and safety, fundamental cooking principles, menu design, pastry baking, and bread-making practices, stock and sauce making. The theoretical classroom learning will be pertinent to the tactile practical applications in the kitchen environment. Limited enrollment and small class size (only 30 students in total) will offer a greater opportunity for an exclusive student learning experience.
The ultimate goal of this pre-apprenticeship program is to offer a broad spectrum of learning opportunities so the participating students can start to develop a strong philosophy, ethics, and direction towards food and a successful career in the culinary arts.
This 21-week program will be an excellent bridge for participants exploring the idea of a possible career in cooking.
Program Manager, Samantha Murphy, and Classroom Facilitator, Shakera Reid-Rathwell will be pleased to provide additional information and would welcome the opportunity to meet to explain the unique aspects of this program.
