It depends on what level you want to work at. A head chef generaly needs to be NVQ3+ with at least 5 years of experience in addition, but a broiler op at burger king only needs to turn up for their shift. In the UK good quialifications are generaly either NVQ or City & Guild, there are plenty of evening class qualifications around but not all are suited to cooking in a commercial kitchen, a lot are just to help you cook for yourself and your family.
It’s hard, thankless work and badly paid - expect nothing in return for hours of blood sweat and tears. It may look glamorous on TV but remember - you’re not going to be Gordon Ramsay, you’re going to be the guy he’s shouting at.

My parnter worked at a retirment village were thy gave him the title of head chef. I believe that a head chef
is someone who has quilifications and has gone to school to learn how to be one
also sum one with natural talent. He only got the job because
someone in his family worked in the same position previously
he cooked things from cooking books and made simple things like cassaroles
pasta bake Nd simple cakes. I have told him that he is a cook not a chef
but e and my mother say it’s just a title not something that needs quilifacations
are they right or wrong? Is
he actually a chef or cook?
At least 5 years of experiance, a high school diploma, and you have to love food. You can’t be scared of knives, you have to be able to memorize recipes rather quickly, and have a devotion to clean and organize. Hope this helps!
