Could you be a top chef of the future?
The Glasgow Tourism Service Initiative aims to nurture and encourage skilled and talented chefs of the future
A career as a chef can be anything you want it to be. With the right direction, training, enthusiasm, motivation and mentoring, chefs can progress very quickly to jobs that are highly rewarding and exciting.
Skilled and talented chefs can look forward to a career full of opportunities, worldwide travel, a wealth of job satisfaction and acclaim - and even six-figure salaries for head chefs.
Surprisingly, however, Glasgow's tourism and hospitality industry does not have enough skilled chefs. Now an innovative Skills Development Initiative for city chefs has been launched by the Glasgow Tourism Service Initiative - with support from industry leaders and top chefs - to create talented chefs of the future.
The brand new Skills Development Programme incorporates a wide range of innovative projects for chefs including an on-line careers resource, an ambassador training programme, "buddy day" work shadowing sessions and college-based events. This programme is offered thanks to funding from Skills Development Scotland.

A key objective is to increase employment in tourism-related jobs from 31,000 to 40,000
