The Chef Academy of London was founded in 2007. After a huge success in Italy, we opened our first school in the UK, located in central London. Our aim is to train our students to become professional chefs.
We offer an effective practical training scheme that gives our students all the tools and skills to start a career as a professional chef. During the course you will be training in one of our partner restaurants with one of our chef trainers,. You will be experiencing working in a live professional kitchen and getting an inside view of the restaurant business. You will deal with every aspect of a chefs routine, from the choice of fresh produce to the balancing of food costs. You will be learning all the techniques required to start working right away. The most important aspect and why we believe we teach in the most effective form, is that you are learning from the professionals in a professional environment. We are the only school that offers this kind of training and this is the reason that our students have such a high success rate.
We are currently offering the following courses: Professional Chef Course, Advanced Professional Chef Course, Michelin Star Chef Course, Professional Italian Cuisine Course, Professional Patisserie and Confectionery Course, Professional Basic Patisserie and Bakery Course, Professional Patisserie Intermediate Level and Advanced Level. You can find more information about these courses on our courses page. What makes us unique is that we can discuss what you would like to achieve and skills that you may already acquire and create a customised course that suits you perfectly.
After completing one of our courses, you will have all the tools needed to start your career immediately. You will be HACCP certified, have an IAO certifications and a diploma signed by the chef. You will know your way around the kitchen with confidence and have all the techniques to allow you to enter a kitchen as an active member of the team.
Here at the Chef Academy, we want the best for the future of our students. When you finish your course, a member of our careers team will hunt for the perfect job for you and arrange interviews for you to attend. We currently have an 100% employment rate.
After a huge success in Italy and here in London, we have recently expanded to the US. We have opened an Academy in New York and have some excellent chef trainers ready to teach the next generation of chefs!
