Is cooking your calling?

NZ’s food culture is world-renowned, and now’s a great time to move ahead with training in this once-again booming industry.

Whether you love baking, or you dream of whipping up culinary creations as a chef one day, our practical, hands-on courses help you build work-ready kitchen skills to help you get a job and start your journey.

Learn the specialised techniques of cookery and bakery, as well as presentation and restaurant management. Cookery students also learn about food science, nutrition and dietary information.  

With a shortage of trained chefs and bakers, it’s a great time to start training or upskill. We’ll help you fine-tune your CV and interview skills and line you up with exciting job opportunities to get your career cooking.  

Our Cookery courses are delivered by the Culinary Collective – NZMA's Culinary School.
