What our students say

marjorie

“Handling a fulltime job and studies at the same time requires a good level of planning and prioritization. It means that you can put food on the table while at the same time gaining the skills to build a wonderful new future. Anyone can cook but to be a good cook, a passionate cook, and a confident cook it takes particular care and attention.

International Culinary Studio helped me to pursue my dreams because I can study while I am working, and I don’t need to go to school and I have flexible time, so I balance my study and work. Taking online classes is more convenient, affordable, and effective. While I am studying, I’ve learnt a lot of things that can change on a daily basis, but my chef mentor keeps me motivated to do the best that I can. Online courses are designed to be equally as rigorous and demanding as traditional courses, you need to stay motivated even on the bad days and keep reminding yourself of why you are doing it.”

Digital Badge

International Culinary Studio is able to offer digital badges to international students studying offshore, including those taking their Diploma in Professional Cookery (Commis Chef digital badge) and those taking the school’s Global Advanced Diploma in Professional Cookery (for a Chef de Partie digital badge). Certification is achieved through the issuing of digital badges, which provide a secure way to showcase achievements online, using social media. They can be used by employers to reward hard-working staff, retain talent, and even recruit better – as they are given an instant online view of the skills and experience of people applying for jobs. From the individual’s perspective, they can make their skills visible and accessible, opening up new opportunities for work and personal growth.

The digital badges from International Culinary Studio are stamped with the International Culinary Studio logo, along with the City & Guilds and Worldchefs logos. Each one states what the individual has achieved
