CULINARY ARTS HIGHER CERTIFICATE IN ARTS


What is the programme about?


The Culinary Arts programme provides graduates with the skills to cook to an appropriate level of competence, and to establish a base for further professional career development. This programme prepares students for work as professional chefs in the hospitality and tourism sectors. A chef will learn to be creative in the kitchen but also requires good business management and communications skills to organise and direct staff in the kitchen environment and our programme provides students with these skills. A Culinary Arts qualification is a passport to travel and the programme is recognised worldwide.


This programme covers the theory and practice of professional cookery and includes a 12 week work placement.


Note: This programme is supported by Fáilte Ireland. Students will require €450 approx. for knives, books, uniforms and safety shoes in the first week of college.


Who is the programme suited to?


The programme will appeal to students interested in developing a career as a professional chef in the hospitality and tourism industry. The hotel industry seeks to train approximately 3,000 new chefs a year due to natural attrition so there are exciting and plentiful career options for students.

Year 2: Culinary Skills 2, Global & Contemporary Cuisine, Pastry 2, Classical Cuisine and Gastronomy, Business Management, Catering Systems and Resource Management and Work Based Learning (12 week placement).


What can I do after the programme?

employment as professional chefs in the tourism and hospitality industry, having a standard equivalent to completing two years of the four-year chef apprenticeship.
