Start your Catering Career with LYS
Limerick Youth Service has a limited number of spaces available on our Catering Course for young people who are interested in career in one of Ireland’s leading industries.
The course is open to young people (16-21yrs) and provides trainees with a balanced mix of practical and academic skills needed to work in a fast paced catering environment.
Throughout the two year course, learners become competent in short order cooking, meal service, kitchen skills and customer service in addition to information technology and personal effectiveness.
Under the guidance of experienced instructors, trainees will learn to cook a diverse range of breakfasts and lunches that are served to the public.
Trainees also take part in periods of work experience with one young person spending time at the famous Ballymaloe Catering School, Co. Cork.
Trainees will graduate with a QQI Level 4 Major Award and can progress to further study and/or enter the workplace, with former trainees studying Culinary Arts in Limerick Institute of Technology and others working with chefs in some of Ireland’s most famous hotels including Dromoland Castle.
The Catering Course is funded by the Limerick Clare Education & Training Board and you do not need a Leaving Certificate with interested parties are asked to contact Kathleen at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 061-412444.
The Catering Course is based at Limerick Youth Service’s Community Training Centre, 5 Lr. Glentworth St, Limerick.
