New Scheme to Help Female Chefs

20th Aug 2010

Michelin-starred chef, Micheal Cains, has helped design a programme to provide female chefs with training to help bridge skill the gap between them, and their male counterparts.

The programme is run by sector skill council, People 1st, who in a recent survey found that over 60% of chefs are male. A lack of training is believed to have hampered the progress of many female chefs.

Speaking at the launch of the Women 1st Female Chef Programme, he said "Chefs are one of the hardest positions to fill and the industry needs to secure the best talent rather than shun part of the workforce." He went on to say "Today's chefs need to have more than just good cooking skills, they need to be able to manage and motivate kitchen staff, supervise the gross profit levels and crucially, be business savvy. It is therefore crucial for employers to provide the right training for their female chefs to help take their careers to the next level".
