Want to be a Chef?

ETC is offering an exciting pathway to becoming a qualified Chef. If you want to gain a nationally recognised qualification in one of the highest skill shortage industries in Australia, join our ‘Yes Chef’ Program and start your chef apprenticeship!

You will learn on the job under the guidance of your workplace supervisor. Your ETC trainer will come to your workplace to assess your skills development which saves you having to leave your job for training. Every quarter you will be invited to participate in group practical workshops delivered by ETC and other experts.

At the end of your Cookery Apprenticeship, you will have obtained a nationally recognised qualification (SIT30821 – Certificate III in Commercial Cookery), which opens up job opportunities in restaurants, hotels, clubs, pubs, cafes and coffee shops.
