“I chose an apprenticeship as it provides me with a lot more practical experience with not only how to cook properly, but also how to work in a busy, fast paced environment. 

“I work at The Ellerby Hotel in Whitby and it’s great. I work different shifts and I get so much experience. I love the different shifts each week as I like the variety. 

“My tutor in college is really good and is so helpful, we can also have a bit of banter with him too which is key to working in this industry. You’re working in a fast paced environment which can be stressful so you need to be able to keep calm, and have a bit of fun with it.” 

Apprenticeship: Level 2 Commis Chef Apprenticeship 

Previous School: Freeborough Academy
