This course will equip you with the skills required to not only work as a chef in a commercial context, but to also take on a supervisory role. In addition to learning to produce a range of dishes, you will learn valuable skills in menu planning, such as planning menus for special dietary requirements and ensuring the cost-effectiveness of menus.

Is starting your own business in this industry something you aspire to? This course will help you develop the skills to support your dream. You will learn some fundamentals of leadership including, managing conflict, leading others, managing finances, coordinating cooking operations and a range of other techniques that will allow you to work effectively in a supervisory role or as the manager of your own business.

Our on-campus restaurants are the ideal learning environments; you will gain insights into what working in a commercial kitchen is actually like by participating in live service periods (actual customers and time pressures).
