Aria Care Group launches Chef Academy

Aria Care Group has partnered with training provider Lifetime to nurture its homegrown culinary talent.

The Chef Academy offers nationally recognised qualifications and the opportunity to learn more about the hospitality industry. Five apprentices have already attended two masterclasses – the first in Billingsgate Market, London, in October, which also marked the official launch of the academy, and the second, which took place on 8 February.

James Clear, director of hospitality at Aria Care, said: “Every day is a learning day as a chef. As a group we invest in our training and apprenticeships provide an exciting opportunity for people to gain nationally recognised qualifications, learn more about the hospitality industry, and achieve the next steps in their role.

“The masterclasses are hands-on courses which not only have all the candidates learning together and encouraging each other, but also gives them the opportunity to witness the skills of our experienced chef trainers first hand.”

Tom Withers-Ryan, second chef at Aria Care’s Ivy Court Care Home in Norwich, said: “The Aria Care Chef Academy seemed like the logical choice to support me in my journey towards a future head chef role. My favourite part of the programme is the masterclasses; these practical days are great as I can use the skills I have learnt every day in my role, while developing my knowledge of working in a kitchen and my understanding of food preparation.”
