Prue Leith offers various courses at our renowned chefs school in Centurion, Gauteng; one which is the Diploma in Culinary Studies which can be attended while you work over a period of twelve months.
It is the perfect qualification for the trainee chef that also aspires to get a sought after qualification from one of the top rated chefs’ schools in South Africa. The part time course includes hot and cold pastry kitchens, finance, first aid & fire, as well as kitchen management courses.
The attendees obtain practical experience at our onsite restaurant, voted as one of the top restaurants in the country. The practical training in the chef’s school restaurant kitchen is compulsory, ensuring that all students attain the same high standards which have set our chef school apart from others in the industry.
Any person already working in the culinary industry and who has a qualification in a kitchen discipline, but want to obtain a further qualification from a reputable chef school may apply. It is not a course for hobby cooks since it entails the same strict standards as our Grande Chef Course and is not for the faint-hearted. It will require a lot of dedication, but with the additional skills obtained, promotion or even your own restaurant will not be a mere dream.
The course is divided in two semesters and students write the City & Guilds IVQ in Food Preparation & Culinary Arts exam (7065) alongside the internal exams. As with any top rated chef’s school, a well-planned curriculum is offered to prepare the student in French cuisine, spice selection, sauce preparation, pastry chef skills and management of costs as well as stock.
