Successful people for business success

The New Zealand Cookery Apprenticeship is the elite culinary programme where upcoming chefs become qualified experts through on-job training – developing vital skills, knowledge and perfecting their art to the highest standard of commercial competence for upscale restaurants. It is the only programme of its kind in New Zealand and highly sought-after by leading hotels, restaurants and aspiring young chefs.

Managed by ServiceIQ, the Restaurant Association supports the apprenticeship programme by running the Commercial Competence Assessments conducted in the middle and at the end of each apprenticeship.
