The Cotswold Chef Food Centre is part of the FEAST Network established to enhance formal qualifications for public and
private sector caterers. We welcome Chefs, Cooks and support staff from schools, care homes, prisons and hospitals. We can offer bespoke

We are also pleased to be able to enhance the education of all people of all ages and can enrich pre apprentice, apprentice and NVQ q
ualifications to ensure that your learner really is a cut above the rest. The “value added” activities which we offer help
to support their basic programmes and really can make a difference in attitude, skills, confidence and knowledge – which will then benefit
both staff and customers back in the workplace.
