Double up on our courses with one of our custom-made specials that’ll set you up as a manager in restaurants or hotels. There’s also one that will transform you into a bartender with barista skills. These programmes combine two courses and get you a great discount on your final course fees.

OUR GOAL

Our goal is to help you make a career out of something you really care about. We’ll do that by getting you excited about New Zealand’s unique food, beverage and service culture.

Along the way, you’ll see just how far high-quality Kiwi hospitality can take you.
