Programme Content

Gain cooking skills for further study or employment, while you're still at school.

Dual Enrolment programmes are FREE if you're in Years 11, 12 or 13 and a great way to earn NCEA credits and get a feel for tertiary study, while you’re still at school.

Working with experienced chefs in our commercial kitchens, your study will cover culinary skills, pastry skills and restaurant service essentials. Our practical training will give you the confidence and know-how to work your culinary magic in a commercial kitchen and hone your skills across a range of cooking styles, from main courses to pastries.

This programme is delivered one day per week (Tuesdays 9:00am - 3:00pm).

*Places are limited and funding is dependent on availability. Some courses may incur costs, depending on the learner's eligibility.
