If you have an interest in food and would like to work with food now is the time to do it. There are currently up to 5,000 vacancies for qualified chefs in Ireland. The Irish International Hotel and Catering School can help to get you on the right track to start your career. It offers a full-time and part-time QQI major awards in professional cookery at Level 5 and 6 on the National Framework of Qualifications.
Level 5 programmes include a six-week work placement which in the majority of cases leads to full time employment (IIHCS will help you to secure a position ), or the opportunity to progress to the Level 6 programme.
The IIHCS has established itself over the last 10 years as one of the west’s premier providers of third level education, specialising in full time professional cookery and business management/tourism at QQI Level 5 and 6 major awards. Each programme can be completed in one year and is accredited by QQI.
The school, located in Salthill, offers all tuition in small groups which ensures that students receive individual attention from highly qualified and experienced tuition staff.
To date all graduates have successfully either entered the workplace or have continued their education at degree level with many of them gaining entry into year two of the degree programme (once they have fulfilled all the criteria of the individual institution ).
All courses will start on September 24 and there are limited places available (see advertisement for course details ).
Discounted places are available on all courses for the first three places booked — quote the code Advertiser 2018.
