Congratulations to St. Andrews Healthcare in Northampton, who have launched the first Apprenticeship scheme using our CTH Specialist Chef Award in Social Care qualification, delivered by HIT Training. St. Andrews Healthcare are the UK's leading charity providing specialist mental health care with a reputation of over 175 years.
On the 19th of June, both Steve Beckworth, our Director of Sales and Marketing, and Philippe Degand, our Culinary Examiner, went to St. Andrews to attend the launch event which was a Chef competition. The care chefs were challenged to create nutritious, interesting dishes from scratch and these are the words of Philippe at the end of the competition:
I was so impressed by the effort and creativity of the food produced for Dysphagia patients and the high level of interest from all the chefs involved
It is very exciting to contribute to this important and rapidly growing sector, texture-modified food requires a specific set of skills and our Level 2 Specialist Award for Chefs in Health and Social Care qualification happily meets this demand.
Here are some pictures from the event. If you would like to learn or teach the qualification, please email [email protected].
