Practical skill assessment is an option offered when the candidate is more confident in demonstrating their skills than explaining them to the assessor. It provides a more hands-on approach in the kitchen than mere discussion does. The practical assessment takes five to eight hours.
You are required to complete a series of practical work-based tasks that demonstrate your skills and undergo a short interview and/or written assessment designed to assess the depth of your knowledge and how you apply that knowledge. The practical assessment is conducted in English, and no interpreter is allowed. The practical tasks and interview questions asked by the assessor are based on the units listed in your trade.
