by Tia

The world of hospitality – and especially the culinary arts – is exciting, fast-paced, creative, and dynamic.

Obtaining a professional qualification from Chefs Training & Innovation Academy (CTIA) sets students up for success by offering them a solid foundation in the field and preparing them to work anywhere in the world.

Culinary Courses Offered at CTIA

CTIA has three study mediums for those looking to gain professional culinary qualifications, namely Full-Time, Part-Time and an Online option. Below, we will explore each in more detail.

  • Full-time courses: Our full-time courses offer students the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the world of the culinary arts. Courses run from Monday to Friday and include industry placements where students get the chance to work at top establishments across South Africa. CTIA has over 350 industry partners, ranging from fine dining restaurants in the Cape Winelands, all the way to some of South Africa’s most popular National Parks.
  • Part-time courses: Part-time courses are ideal for students who need to juggle busy schedules or work alongside their studies. Our part-time courses are held in our training kitchens and courses run once a week in the evenings between 18:00 – 22:00.
  • Online courses: Guided by dedicated instructors on Moodle and Microsoft Teams, theory training and live sessions make our Online option accessible from anywhere. Capture your evidence during practical activities. Conclude your journey with a final exam at the nearest CTIA Campus.

Most courses are recognised by the international accreditation body City & Guilds, meaning that students can also take their skills abroad once they graduate from our culinary school.
