Springboard’s Future Chef, is a culinary initiative which is delivered in over 600 schools nationwide. The main goal of Future Chef is to assist young people aged 12-16 to learn the vital life skills of cooking and nutrition, as well as providing invaluable insight into and inspiration for building a career within the hospitality industry. The Future Chef competition challenges students to cook under pressure and develop practical skills through timed cook-offs in school heats, local and regional finals.
