Lex School of Talent

In 2011 we designed our apprentice scheme, Lex School of Talent, to give aspiring chefs
an opportunity to learn on the job and build an amazing career.

We work with Springboard and The University of West London to provide
an opportunity for new chefs to gain NVQ qualifications, whilst working in
a supportive, fun and stimulating environment.

WHAT OUR APPRENTICE
CHEFS SAY
  • Louise Roberts

    “Lex School of Talent has given me an ideal platform to build an amazing career. I’ve got so much from the Apprenticeship Programme and have made so many friends. The thing I most enjoyed was that it was so unpredictable and never boring. I’ve had the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the best chefs in the industry, which has helped me win some nationwide awards and competitions.”

  • Kimberley Walsh
    Junior Chef de Partie

    “Lex School of Talent has been really rewarding and helped me gain great qualifications. Lexington has allowed me to enter numerous industry related competitions and take part in some fabulous events, which allows me to showcase my skills. It’s been hard work but a lot of fun and I’m now fully qualified, with a solid job behind me. I would not have got through it if I didn’t have the support I received from Lexington.”
