The Good Food Apprenticeship
The Good Food Apprenticeship offers is a training programme for early school leavers who would like to become Chefs. It is an incredible programme of seasonal food inspiration; farm visits, practical cookery skills, chef masterclasses and work placements.
After 3 months of foundation skills each student chooses 4 local businesses to experience the world of work including restaurants, events companies, bakers and cafes. These businesses have been hand-picked by the team at Edinburgh Food Social as they represent the highest standards of food production, sourcing and care for their teams.
The Good Food Apprenticeship is an invaluable tool in teaching young people about local, sustainable food and the results that we have seen from our initial projects have been wonderful, taking young people with complex back stories and giving them the confidence and practical skills to succeed in the food industry.
A great way to support our social enterprise is to buy a voucher that can be used as a gift.
