Commercial Cookery

Image of Oscar Geovanni“My favourite part about studying at The Gordon is the hands-on experience in the kitchen supervised by great teachers. Practical cooking sessions allow me to apply class knowledge and theory to develop my culinary skills, alongside other students.
The comprehensive curriculum, experienced teachers, industry relevant training and learning environment that simulate real-world experiences have equipped me with skills necessary to excel in the culinary world.
I am confident the skills I’m developing will contribute to securing my dream job. I actually got my first job as a chef at a reputable Japanese restaurant in Geelong, after just 3 months of studying!”

All the teachers are professional and experienced and they make the training interesting and memorable. I have not only learned how to cook a great meal, but also learned how to be a team player. After studying with my classmates all year, we have become like a family. We study from each other, help each other, and have a lot of fun. As an international student I was always shy to speak out, but in the cookery industry you have to communicate with others and my English has improved dramatically. I’ve not only learnt English, but also some specialised words in French, Italian, Japanese and others.
I am now working in a local restaurant and continuing my studies at Certificate IV level to gain more knowledge and experience. I hope to own my own small restaurant one day.”
