The entry-level hands-on course at Mission Kitchen, Battersea, will give you a foundation in industry and culinary skills working in a live restaurant environment.

The council’s Lifelong Learning team has teamed up with Mission Kitchen and the Into Hospitality partnership to help Wandsworth residents make the most of local opportunities in the hospitality sector. Into Hospitality promotes hospitality as a career and offers courses, training, and work placements at some of London’s best and most respected independent restaurants.

The course at Mission Kitchen is being delivered by one of the Into Hospitality partners, Electric Mayonnaise. At the end attendees will get a trial placement at one of Into Hospitality’s partner restaurants.

Into Hospitality has already run eight previous courses, and seventy per cent of the people taking part have got a job as a result.

Cllr Rhodri Morgan, Wandsworth council’s cabinet member for skills and employment said: “The hospitality industry is a vital part of the Wandsworth economy. This partnership between the council, Into Hospitality and Mission Kitchen provides an opportunity for local people to access high quality training in a live kitchen and will enable them to make the most of the many employment opportunities opening up in this sector. It’s also a way of making sure Wandsworth’s pubs, bars and restaurants get the staff they need.”
