With an increasing amount of school leavers qualifying for university studies, and limited space available at tertiary education institutions, there are tens of thousands of university hopefuls that will not be accepted.
There are however still study opportunities available for young people in South Africa. Do you have a strong passion for food and can see yourself in a culinary career where you can live your passion and let your creativity shine every day? If yes, look no further than the leading Chef Education and Training Institution in Southern Africa, Capsicum Culinary Studio.
The professional programmes on offer are internationally accredited by City & Guilds (UK) and allow graduates entry into the marketplace anywhere in the world. Capsicum Culinary Studio has a national footprint with six campuses across the country (Johannesburg, Pretoria, Boksburg, Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth) – making Chef training easily accessible to all.
“According to the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism, the hospitality and tourism industry in South Africa is growing fast and as a result has triggered a gradual widening of the gap between supply and demand of qualified chefs. Currently there is a skills shortage of 24 000 chefs needed in South Africa. Furthermore South Africa’s national tourism sector strategy aims to create an additional 225 000 jobs by 2020.”
“Being a Chef is more than a job, it’s a way of life. It can be demanding, and also rewarding. With the right professional attitude and motivation, blended with a comprehensive skill set learned from a reputable institution like Capsicum Culinary Studio, you can make a success of one of many Chef jobs available”, says Chef Deon Roets, Academic Manager of Capsicum Culinary Studio.
