      Does the RN train its cooks and stewards at a school or onboard its ships these days and what qualifications do they receive?

        They are now part of the Logistics Branch. Basic training (10 weeks) at HMS Raleigh, then I think 6 months training at the Defence Maritime Logistics School at HMS Raleigh.
        They can qualify for appropriate Level 2 NVQ Diplomas in cookery or hospitality

          Specialist training will move by the end of 2020 from the DMLS to the newly built Defence College of Logistics, which will combine all three services training at Worthy Down barracks

            Training must be good – one of them is doing well on ‘MasterChef: the Professionals’. Initial Training & promotion courses have all been shore-based for a very long time.
