Chef Apprentice

Hello, I was wondering if anyone can help me. I know the training for chef apprentice is 10 weeks long at Raleigh followed by your first sea draft, does anyone know what happens after that? Do you do more training at Raleigh or is it then all done at sea?

Everyone does phase 1 which is 10 weeks at raleigh, then you do phase 2 which is where you are put to train in your specialist branch whilst getting some ship experience, and that usually last a few months, i mean im going in as a Seaman Specialist andy Phase 2 is 9months

I thought the RFA chef apprenticeship was 26 weeks at Raleigh, as when the job title was catering assistant (cook) it was, not 100% though as I'm on the seamanship apprenticeship. Call recruitment at Jago Road they will give you all the information :)

I know it was 26 weeks before they changed to apprenticeships, but according to the careers website it's now 10 weeks, il have to give them a ring and find out

Some of the new information is wrong. It says starting salary will be £16,656 but it's not, its £14.5k.
My training program is the same as it was before they changed it to an apprenticeship. It just has different terms of employment and pay.

I knew the pay was wrong on the website, I thought the training might still be the same length unless they have decided to spread it over the two years

Hi, I'm currently waiting to hear if I'll be accepted into the chef's apprenticeship. One thing I did not find out about however is are you paid for the six month part of your training? (ie after the initial 10 weeks, which to my understanding is not paid) Any help appreciated, thanks.
