FULLY FUNDED COOKERY COURSE – Professional Cookery (QQI Level 5)

Mondays to Thursdays 9.15am – 4:30pm, Fridays 9.15am - 1pm

It is a course perfect for people with a passion for food and would suit those who want to work in industry, those who need to fund a college education through part-time work in hospitality, those needing industrial certification or those that have found themselves out of work and want to retrain in a new field.

It is a very hands-on course designed to give a practical understanding of what a career in professional cookery would involve, preparing students for the work place, while also assisting them to further educational attainment.
