Is cooking your passion? Do you dream of becoming a Chef? Then a career in gastronomy could be just what you are looking for. Whether you would like to work in professional kitchens, or open your own bakery, there are a range of courses available to train you in these professions.

In Australia, there are several educational institutions that offer cooking courses to prepare you for a professional career in food. One of these courses is taught by Tafe South Australia and Le Cordon Bleu Australia.

The Le Cordon Bleu Grand Diplôme is the world’s most recognised culinary education program. Available to Australian students via partner institutions, this course demonstrates the traditional French techniques employed in classic Cuisine and Pâtisserie.

Students may choose to focus on Cuisine or Pâtisserie, where they will be schooled in the traditional and contemporary techniques used in professional kitchens, taught by highly experienced chefs, using the latest industry equipment.

A distinguishing feature of the course is that students will also use these skills in real kitchens via the industry placement part of the program, to ensure every student has had the opportunity to apply their skills in the real world.

The Grand Diplôme also offers students the opportunity to further these essential skills with training in business subjects that will prepare them with the knowledge to potentially run their own business, as well as advanced methods of food presentation, packaging and decoration.

On completion, students will receive a qualification that is recognised around the world, an international passport to the hospitality industry.

English Language Intensive Course 

The English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) program has been designed for international students who require English language training before commencing formal studies in Australia. The ELICOS definition means that programs are open to everyone, including people who are in Australia on a tourist or visitor visa and people who do not want to do any further study after their English classes are over. However, restrictions may apply in these cases. Students undertaking ELICOS programs may come to Australia with plans to undertake further studies, with English language as the stepping stone to another course or as a standalone program.
