NEW CATERING SCHOOL
Stedychefs is proud to announce the opening of its very own catering school open to all and now has the facilities for young adults with learning difficulties and disabilities, teaching the basics of cookery skills and teaching food hygiene and a proper insight as to how the catering industry really is like.
Stedychefs has all the facilities in place and a minibus to help with transportation.
There is also a big communal area for friends and family to watch their loved ones learn. By all our fully trained staff who are all DBS checked.
At Stedychefs we want everyone in our community to have the opportunity to learn about food and cooking in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
We are really pleased to be able to run Life Skills Cookery Courses for adults who may have a learning or physical disability. We work with individuals and, where applicable, social workers to find out how best we can help and support our students to achieve the most from a course of learning. In partnership with the relevant statutory and voluntary agencies we ensure that our students are on the best path to learning. We run 4 hour courses during the day in our cookery school where students will learn a range of skills which are planned and taught, with their individual needs in mind, over a number of weeks.
During each session students learn from a variety of practical tasks. Each term we cover topics such as food hygiene and safety through to menu planning along with plenty of opportunities to get hands on preparing and cooking main meals and desserts. Small group sizes ensure that students get plenty of one to one tuition and support.
Our cookery school is DDA compliant and we have full wheelchair access.
“There’s 94% of adults with physical and learning disabilities who are unemployed, and we think that we can do something about that”
