If you have just left school, or if you have been working in the industry without formal qualifications for a while, then this programme is perfect for you. It covers the key elements of food preparation and culinary services while giving students the opportunity for further training through an entry-level qualification.

Out of our various courses, this is the programme that will provide that first step in your pursuit of becoming a professional chef. It lays down an advanced foundation and qualifies students as kitchen hands and cooks. It is a dual national (QCTO) and international (City & Guilds) qualification, which means it can be used in South Africa and abroad.
