How tough is the competition to become a chef apprentice


My son is applying to become a apprentice chef after he finishes his GCSE's we were wondering how tough the competition is (how many spaces available etc) he's had a tough time with school and is unlikely to achieve many if any GCSE's but he has relevant work experience. Would that be enough or is there something else we can do to boost his application?

No academic qualifications are required for Chefs, Natz, but he will need to be able to pass the RT, the Recruiting Test. Have a look at some example questions here:

He will also need to pass the Fitness Test:

One small thing which you might like to do is to ask at somewhere like W H Smith whether they have a newspaper called Navy News. Your son could read through it and get an idea of current deployments etc.

It's also a good idea for him to have a grasp of where his training will take place, how long it will take etc.
