Grown in Industry

Our brand new Certificate III in Commercial Cookery level qualification – Grown in Industry – has been designed in partnership with Tasmania’s hospitality industry to bring a practical, hands-on course that will lead you directly to employment as an apprentice with one of our business partners*.

You will immerse yourself in the Great Chefs Series and work in the kitchen alongside some of the greatculinary masterminds in the world, including Alain Passard, Dominique Crenn, Christian Puglisi, Guillaume Brahimi, Jacques Reymond, David Moyle, Phil Wood, Mark Best and Mike McEnearney!

Calling All Students!

Designed in partnership with the hospitality industry in Tasmania, this new course is centered around the Great Chefs Series – an event that invites some of the world’s great culinary superstars into the Drysdale classroom to mentor and cook beside students throughout the teaching year.  Very few cookery students receive such a valuable, practical experience of working side-by-side with high caliber chefs such as Mark Best and Tetsuya Wakuda (to name but two!).

We’ve also partnered with some of Tasmania’s best restaurants and hotels to provide successful applicants with a direct and supported pathway into employment. That’s right – you’ll be guaranteed employment as an apprentice with one of our business partners on successful completion of stage 1 of this course.

To find out more, check out the course information and register your interest now!  This opportunity is only open to a limited number of students for the 2017 intake. Suitability sessions start in the week beginning 20 March 2017 and the course will commence in Devonport, Launceston and Hobart on 29 March 2017.
