Hello. We are a training centre and a real life work environment which provides meals for the customers attending ECL Brentwood Day Centre throughout the week.

About us

The training centre at ECL Brentwood Day Centre focuses on a catering experience and operates a progressive programme which incorporates preparing main meals, snacks and a variety of desserts.

The training covers associated skills in food presentation, nutritional education, food safety and food hygiene whilst also incorporating functional skills which include teamwork, time keeping, communication and money skills, equipping you with the basics for everyday life.

The service is customer focused with activities which build on the personal touch and provide the best experience for our trainees, while monitoring and continually reviewing progress and aspirations.

ECL Cafe - Brentwood can provide external catering for local events from a buffet menu which can be personalised to individual requirements. The centre also supplies celebration cakes with personalised toppers designed for your party or event.


Prices will depend on the length of your session(s) and the level of support you need. As an example a full day with one of our services would typically start at around £58. Please note that you will be assessed on the levels of support you need.
