2024 Chef’s


Creating exceptional chefs

In early 2024 we will be running our next Cove UK Chefs’ Academy. The academy will start on Monday 29th January and will run for 3 weeks until Friday 16th February. The team will get opportunities to develop their skills, by working with highly professional Head Chefs who will mentor and coach them to become successful team members or leaders.

The chef academy is for anyone who would like to learn on our coveted Culinary Programme in the kitchen and learn about our standards on how to deliver 100% customer satisfaction.
