A NEW qualification in cooking skills has been launched by the British Institute of Innkeeping (BII).
The Level 2 Award in Cooking Skills (ACS) provides candidates with the correct processes and procedures for working in a kitchen or a catering environment.
The award is designed to be compatible with the BIIAB’s Level 1 Essentials in Catering Award, (ECA), and other related qualifications such as Basic Food Hygiene.
The course has been developed by Nick Taylor-Guy, former Director of Human Resources and General Manager of Ubon by Nobu.
Cathie Smith, Director of BIIAB, said that it was designed to be flexible, and could either be delivered in the workplace or through BIIAB centres.
A third qualification, the Level 3 Certificate in Kitchen Management, will be launched in Spring 2008.
