The Fifteen Cornwall apprentice programme is a life changing mix of training, working, self-development and fun.

Yes, we’ll push you but we’ll open your eyes to so many great things including amazing food, hands-on training from professional chefs, trips to visit our suppliers and a truly inspirational environment to work in.

This challenging yet inspirational course is aimed at young people who are in need of a second chance, to help them gain qualifications, and who are looking to start an exciting new career.

The programme is intense – 16 months in total with four spent at college and 12 in the Fifteen Cornwall kitchen working one to one with our team of professional chefs across every section of a commercial kitchen. By graduation each has the skills to excel in any restaurant.

You will get paid the national apprentice wage, we will also pay you tips and transport is provided from St Austell and the Clay villages and Newquay.

Our welfare support programme is there to help you with any challenges you may face inside or outside of the kitchen, working with you to help you succeed.
