Lifetime Training Chef Academy

Lifetime Training’s Chef Academy provides a hands-on learning experience for learners to hone their kitchen skills in a supportive and encouraging environment surrounded by talented chefs and trainers with years of sector and industry experience.

Recognising the existing challenges within the Hospitality Sector, Lifetime’s Chef Academy aims to develop chefs at all ages and skill levels in order to retain and progress learners through their career pathway. Supported by professional chef and TV presenter Joe Hurd, learners will master the finer points of the Apprenticeship Standards through practical application of the knowledge found throughout their training programme.


Bespoke training programmes

Lifetime works with our employer partners to find the ideal programme that meets the training needs of your kitchen and menu while supporting your talent pipelines.

Learner Support

Each learner will be supported by a Regional Trainer in the workplace, ensuring the criteria with the Standard is met and the learner is practicing and preparing for End-point Assessment. This one-to-one, face to face support is the cornerstone of Lifetime’s delivery model.

Professional master classes

The master-classes are delivered by Lifetime Technical Trainers and supported by Joe Hurd. Technical Trainers are highly skilled, specialist mentors focused on delivering an engaging and informative, practical day of skills training that can be transferred back to the workplace.

Cohorts and Venues

Closed master-classes are a cohort of learners attending from a single employer. Where possible, closed master-classes can be delivered in the employer’s site.

Open master-classes will be available on a first-come, first served booking basis until the maximum attendance is reached.

Lifetime have partnered with a range of training kitchens throughout the UK to offer a selection of conveniently located, high quality venues for learners to practice their skills.
