Does the course cover cooking skills and recipes?
No we don't. You shouldn't enrol on the catering course unless you're competent in the kitchen. And you probably have enough recipe books without us adding more suggestions. But we cover specialist subjects like modifying your recipes, and cooking for large numbers.
What you'll learn from the course
By the end of the course, you'll have acquired the following skills:
- You'll have learnt the skills of professional catering.
- You'll know how to set up and run your own catering firm or speciality food business
But we also offer a guarantee: if you don't like the course (for any reason), just email us to cancel at any time within 60 days of receiving your pack, and we'll refund your course fees.
Why do we give this refund? Because we don't like to part on bad terms (life's too short). And we'd prefer you to say nice things about us.
But, you ask, does anyone actually claim a refund? Absolutely! Around five per cent of our students ask for their money back each month. And we're happy to pay them, because we know that the best course in the world won't suit every single person.
If you have any questions, call us on 0800 781 1715 (or +44 1373 837 464 if you're outside the UK) and we'll answer any queries you have.
We look forward to helping you succeed.
