T Level in Professional Catering: Invitation

T Level in Professional Catering: Invitation

The Awarding Organisations that will develop and deliver and award T levels in the fourth wave of their rollout in 2023 have been announced. Awarding body Highfield Qualifications is making its debut in the field of T Level development in Catering and is developing occupational specialist content for a professional catering qualification based on the occupational standards for chef de partie and senior production chef.

“Highfield are delighted to have been chosen by the Institute to develop and award the Catering T Level Technical Qualification. It has been well noted that this qualification represents one of the most significant developments in hospitality education within the last decade. Highfield was originally founded to support learners to achieve their educational aspirations in this sector; almost 40 years ago. We really can’t overstate what this accomplishment means to us or how seriously we take this responsibility.”

Jason Sprenger, chief executive at Highfield Qualifications

Like Pearson and City and Guilds before, Highfield are inviting universities to help ensure the design of the technical qualification meets your enrolment needs. It has identified around 75 universities where there is a progression route to undergraduate catering courses.

Can you help Highfield develop the qualification so that it meets your criteria? This can help significantly enhance the opportunity of an increased number of learners looking to enrol on your programmes. You will also be identified as a key academic establishment that has been involved in making this qualification a progression route for degree education and beyond.
