Apprentice chef


Hi, was wondering if I could get some advice on joining as an apprentice chef? I've been thinking about this for a few years now. My only concern is my age, I am currently 42 and was wondering if my age may go against me for an apprenticeship with the RFA in this role? Is this role in demand?

Thanks for any advice

I wouldn't have thought that your age would go against you at 42, Trenny, but hopefully there will be a fuller answer from someone currently serving in the RFA later on.



42 isn't too late to join as an apprentice and yes there is always demand for cooks, many apprentices have come in later in life. The biggest hurdle I found was the drop in salary for over a year during apprentice pay. but it is worth it to get the decent pay rise and a career at sea.
