Culinary Education in 104 languages including Te Reo Māori

A City & Guilds culinary qualification has long been pegged as the benchmark global standard for culinary education by WACS (World Chefs Association). And their qualifications are transforming lives in over 80 countries around the world, including Australia, New Zealand and right throughout Pacific. International Culinary Studio is also registered with NZQA and awaiting final approval for Certificates level 3, level 4 and Diploma at level 5 Programmes.

International Culinary Studio was the first blended learning culinary school in the world to offer these qualifications online to students anywhere on the globe. From their kitchens at home, school or at work.

A proudly New Zealand based culinary school, International Culinary Studio offers accredited and non-accredited culinary programmes to budding Chefs from 8 years old and up to seasoned industry professionals with years of commercial kitchen experience behind them. Students are able to embark on their Culinary journeys or formalize their skills and experience with a City & Guilds qualification.

So far in New Zealand, students have only been able to enrol in culinary programmes and mainly study in English but International Culinary Studio allows students to complete their studies using a system which can be translated over 104 languages, including Te Reo Māori, making it easier for students whose first language is not English to navigate the learning system quicker and allows the student to feel more confident in their ability to study.

Director of Studies, Cheryl Nesbitt says, “The opportunities that online platforms offer any student are potentially limitless and our programmes are designed to ensure that all of our global learners are included. Being able to access educational content in your home language is essential.”

As more and more training providers start offering their students e-learning options, the education sector as a whole, is undergoing a transformative shift. International Culinary Studio is proud to be a leader in blended online culinary education creating opportunities for all potential culinary students, ensuring no future Chef gets left behind.
