9 Ways to Know You’ve Chosen a Superior Culinary School

South Africa is home to some of the most talented chefs and renowned restaurants in the world. Finding yourself amongst the elite when it comes to chef skills takes hard work, unyielding passion, and a commitment to lifelong learning. We at the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy can help you jump-start your career with phenomenal training. If you are looking for a culinary school, below are the nine factors that set an institution ahead of the rest.

Here’s What You Get Out of Our Professional Culinary Courses

Our team at the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy is passionate about the culinary and hospitality industries. Having specialised in these sectors ourselves, we understand the skill and qualification level required to make a name for oneself. It’s a competitive market with a lot of people vying for the same jobs – but we can help empower you with the best possible shot of making a success of your career. Our professional culinary courses cover everything – from the fundamentals of kitchen skills to advanced techniques used across the globe today. With us, you will be ready to take on the world.

Unique Career Paths to Pursue with Our Culinary Certifications

Some people are enamoured with the culinary arts but do not see themselves cooped up in a kitchen all day. Thankfully, the food and beverage sector is vast, and there is a lot one can do. Top-tier training through an established institution like ours at the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy will open doors that lead to far beyond just the kitchen. With our professional culinary certifications, the world truly is your oyster, and your endeavours in this exciting field are far more likely to succeed.

Unlock Your Potential with Our Hospitality Management Training Programmes

Many industries took a knock during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the travel, tourism, and hospitality sectors have faced massive setbacks since 2020. With global economies slowly starting to rebuild, tourism (both locally and internationally) has re-emerged and is again picking up pace. Pandemic fatigue has also resulted in people wanting to travel again and increasing herd immunity and vaccination rates mean that more of this is possible. Students looking into hospitality management training will, therefore, be happy to know that we at the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy have expanded our offerings in this field of study.

Our International Culinary Qualifications Are a Stepping-stone to Global Success

Do your future goals include delights such as custard tarts, crème brûlée, and croissants? Perhaps you dream of running your own kitchen, managing a dynamic team, and creating marvellous menus worthy of a five-star restaurant? No matter your culinary ambitions, we at the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy can help you realise them. The best part of enrolling with us is that most of our courses are dual-certified, which means you can receive both a national-level qualification (accredited by QCTO or CATHSSETA) or an international qualification (accredited by City & Guilds or CTH). This allows students to not only follow their dreams in South Africa but abroad too.

How Innovation in the Culinary Arts is the Basis of All Our Courses

Not all culinary training institutions in South Africa are equal. Some may seem impressive from the outside, but very few academies truly prioritise industry innovations in their learning programmes. For students who do not choose wisely, spending money on below-par institutions can mean money wasted on courses that don’t create many opportunities in the food preparation sector. The Chefs Training & Innovation Academy stands out because we truly believe in providing students with innovative culinary arts training that places them ahead of the curve.

Our Professional Culinary Courses Prepare You for a Bright Career

There is a big difference between a job and a career. A job is usually a single vacancy you fill to make money. If something that offers more money comes along, then you can simply switch to it to earn more. A career, on the other hand, is about fulfilment, not just money. Advancing your career means that everything is done with foresight and a goal in mind. It’s a long-term endeavour and your line of work is the sum of your achievements over time. Having a meaningful career is essential for many people who have dreams of making a difference in the world through their hard work. At the Chefs Training & Innovation Academy, our professional culinary courses prepare students for a successful career. We empower their employability and ensure they can land the opportunities of their dreams.
