Welcome to the Applied Ability Awards Website
The 'Triple A' is an independent qualification for professional chefs designed and delivered by industry for industry in order to provide the benchmarks that will define, develop and promote craft skills. Culminating in a one-day practical exam, the process provides a common syllabus and independent appraisal for in-house apprenticeships. This website contains all the information needed to participate and provides support whilst preparing for the exam.
There are no common and consistent training standards that have the confidence of industry, and none at all that are set and maintained by the profession itself - that's the opportunity that the Triple A now provides.
The Triple A is about chefs taking charge in the battle for craft skills and setting the standards for
trainees and trainers alike. As employers are dependent on those skills we need to give them
our wholehearted support and participate.
