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 Level 5 QQI major award in professional cookery. Both programmes include a six-week work placement which in the majority of cases leads to a full time job 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 administration 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 25 and there are limited places available (see advertisement for course details ). The IIHCS was nominated as Cookery School of the Year at the Irish Restaurant Awards, organised by the Restaurant Association of Ireland, for the last three years.
