Progression from this apprenticeship is expected to be into a chef de partie role or senior production chef role.
A primary objective of the commis chef is to learn and understand how to carry out the basic functions in every section of the kitchen. This gives them the opportunity to experience, consider and value each section with a view to choosing an area where they feel most inspired.
The learning journey of a chef will vary considerably from one individual to the next; however, it is the range of experiences in the basics gained in this role that provide the opportunities to progress to any future senior chef role.
