To study with us you will need the ability to video yourself cooking and send photos through to your Chef instructor/ add to your e-portfolio. You will also be expected to attend zoom meetings with your Chef Instructor so must have a web camera and microphone (if not already installed in your system). Most students video their sessions either via phone or laptop.
