The Level 3 Extended Certificate in Professional Cooking accredited by the Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality (CTH) is a hands-on practical cookery qualification. It is designed for students who want to develop the knowledge and skills required for a wide range of careers as well as a lifetime love of cooking good food.
This five-term course is intended to fit into the A level timetable, however, it can be delivered flexibly both on and off timetable or a combination of both. In general, students take this course in place of an A level or in addition to three A levels. Menus are tasted and marked each week and evidence is collated via our unique online portal, designed to help students and teachers to track progress throughout the course. The Leiths Academy team manages all aspects of this course; including Coursework and assessments.
The final grade of Pass (55-69%), Merit (70 – 84%) or Distinction (85%) is awarded at the end of the course after two 3-hour practical cooking assessments, an online food hygiene and allergen exam and a menu planning coursework task. Students also enjoy working together to plan and host a community cooking event.
The course is a proven Sixth form recruitment and retention tool and offers a clear onward learning pathway to our Level 4 Diploma at Leiths School of Food and Wine in London. It also enhances a personal statement and UCAS application and can play a pivotal role in opening the door to careers in food and drink through our Leiths List recruitment agency who will help secure opportunities for short or longer-term employment.
Example dishes include Tandoori prawns with flat breads and coriander chutney, gourmet venison burgers and vanilla pannacotta with roasted rhubarb and shortbread crumb.
