How will I learn?
During the first session your tutor will outline what will be covered during the course. You can then think about your individual aims for the course and make an individual learning plan, with the help of the tutor. This is a practical course and the sessions will include tutor-led demonstrations, which you will follow to make tasty dishes. You will be able to discuss skills and techniques with others in the group and get one-to-one support from your tutor, as required.

How will I know I'm making progress?
You will review your individual learning plan with your tutor who will give you written feedback and support to achieve your targets.This will enable you to identify any additional support needed and what skills to practise at home.

Will I need to study or practise outside the classroom?
It is always useful to practise your skills between sessions and your tutor will advise you on what to do.

What will I need to take to the course?
Bring an apron, note pad, pen and folder. During the first week your tutor will let you know what ingredients and cooking equipment you will need for the rest of the course.
