Springboard’s FutureChef programme provides an opportunity for industry professional Chefs to support cooking classes in schools across the UK. The programme involves Chefs delivering a demonstration to a class group, engaging with students to help prepare and cook dishes and providing Learning Bites that support the curriculum with topics relating specifically to the Hospitality Industry.
We would like to congratulate the KickStart Class of 2014 for successfully completing the KickStart programme. This year London saw 102 candidates start the programme, 92 of those candidates successfully completed the three week programme, which involved a one week pre-employment training and a two week work placement within the hospitality industry. This programme gives students the opportunity to consider a career in the hospitality industry.
Teams have raised in excess of £31,000 so far with more funds still coming in with the aim of making a difference to young people’s lives.
