We provide all of our students with only the best local and international ingredients available to ensure that when they leave the academy, they have a good understanding of five star tastes and textures. Many of our students have gone on to work in top kitchens around the world for famous chefs such as Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver and the Roux brothers. Unlike many other culinary schools our students are also trained in the business workings of a professional kitchen with our well rounded finance module exploring topics such as menu costings, profit percentages and stock management. As part of this module students are also required to team up and put together a business plan, after which many have gone on to successfully implement themselves.
We value the fact that we are constantly keeping ourselves up to date with industry requirements by constantly monitoring and improving our curriculum where necessary. This has kept our students highly sought after in the industry with ‘Prue Leith graduates only’ adverts making a regular appearance in the classifieds.
