1st Year Certificate Course

Applications for 2025 NOW OPEN!


Students will master all the professional classic cooking methods and techniques needed for a career in a professional kitchen (hot kitchen, pastry kitchen, confectionery and sugar craft), by hands-on application.

Students are divided into teaching groups of no more than 14, where they receive the best, hands-on instruction and individual attention.

Silwood graduates are sought after, as they not only have highly developed culinary skills, but also have a respect and good understanding of the cost of food. This is achieved by making the students responsible for the purchasing and costing of the ingredients needed for practical classes, whilst staying within the given budget. These skills are fundamental in the running of a successful kitchen or food business and are best taught by doing, rather than textbook reading.

Course Content
