Paul was working at The Falcon as a pot washer when his boss approached him and asked him if he’d like to progress and train as a Chef. “I already really enjoyed the industry and working environment so when I was asked if I’d take an apprenticeship I didn’t give it a second thought!”
Paul’s employer got in touch with Middlesbrough College and discussed the options for Paul, as a result he was placed on the Commis Chef Apprenticeship standard and is now the first Northern Skills Group apprentice to pass this exam board!
“Although it was a lot of hard work I’m so pleased I went for it! I was a bit worried with the new exam board but everyone involved was so helpful and supportive with me. I am now working as a Chef in The Falcon and I could not be happier.”
