Stefan Falvo

NZ Certificate in Cookery Level 4

“Just a quick note to let you and the school know that I am thoroughly enjoying myself, I am finding myself trying to rush home from my current full time job (completely different industry working for Würth, engineering and mechanical components) so I can get stuck into my level 4 cooking course.

I will definitely be carrying on to do my level 5 if what I have experienced so far continues, everything seems so clear and the way it is out in front of you via Canvas let’s you easily prepare for what is to come so you are completely prepared and there are no surprises!
I have done a lot of study in my 18 years of sales and this is the most well prepared and professional experience I have had.

Anyway thanks again ICS!”

A.M. – NZ Certificate in Cookery Level 4

“Hi Chef Andy

I’m really enjoying this course I can go at my own pace and as I live far away from town I don’t have to spend as much money on travel costs 

I find the canvas website easy to navigate , the recipes and the videos for the recipes are very helpful especially for pastry techniques . I can watch them over and over before I attempt something which saves me wasting food.
Marking and your feed back is fast and comments helpful and help me improve my skills”

Ella – C&G Diploma in Patisserie
