The Chef de Partie Level 3 apprenticeship is for learners working in a wide range of hospitality settings across the service and commercial sectors.A chef de partie is responsible for running a specific section of the kitchen such as fish, grill, vegetable or larder for example. In a large kitchen, this type of chef usually manages a small team of workers, which they must keep organised so that dishes go out on time, teams are managed effectively, and the work area remains clean and orderly. However, in smaller kitchens a chef de partie may work independently as the only person in their section. Also known as a station or section chef, the chef de partie reports to the senior chef and has a very important role in any kitchen.
