Earn while you learn with our in-work cookery programme! 

Designed for those already working in a culinary environment, you'll design your own advanced dishes and menus; learn how to manage workflow, staffing and supplies in a commercial kitchen; develop a deep understanding of sustainable practice; and ensure you're current with regional, national and global cuisine trends. 

We offer this programme from both our Central Otago and Dunedin campuses. 

Our Central Otago offering involves a series of bespoke masterclasses which will ensure learning is tailored to your needs. You'll also take part in five, three-day workshops and five, in-work check-in days. 

Our Dunedin offering involves an application of prior learning process (APEL) and our expert staff working one-on-one with you in the workplace to meet your needs. 

Working while learning with both options will enable you to reflect on and analyse your current practice and implement changes to how you work.
