Where would I be based?
Longfield Academy Professional Kitchen and Bistro, Main Road, Longfield, Kent, DA3 7PH
In June 2020 we were successful in our bid to the Savoy Educational Trust who have agreed to grant us over £50,000. This will be used to modernise our professional kitchen, providing students with the most up to date equipment whilst ensuring our Telescope Bistro is developed further, providing our guests with a unique dining experience in a school environment.
What will I learn and which skills will I develop?
Depending on the level of entry you will learn:
Who conducts the training?
Jon Sidhu, our resident professional chef guides the students through the course with Michaela Head leading the front of house team. They have a wealth of experience and success guiding students through the course.
How long is the course?
All the courses are full time, 5 days a week and one year in length. If you take the level 1 course, after year 12 we will see you progress on to the level 2 course in year 13. For level 2 students you would progress on to level 3 in year 13. Following completion of the course you will be uniquely placed to join the catering industry or continue to refine your skills in a higher education setting.
