Our Domestic Training Course is a hands-on participation class where we teach the basics of cooking, tips and tricks in the kitchen and the secrets to making healthy and nutritious meals for families.

The key to your setting your domestic worker up with the necessary skills to perform well in the kitchen follows two basic principles:

• Empower them by building confidence
• Provide them with a good knowledge of basic cooking skills

This course provides hands-on training using a variety of tried and tested recipes to put into practice in your own homes. Students are taught basic hygiene, how to use equipment correctly and the correct techniques and cooking methods used to prepare delicious meals. On completion of the course we issue a certificate of competency. On average it takes four four-hour sessions for your domestic to obtain the confidence and the ability to work independently.

The 4-day course is designed for people with limited experience in the kitchen and the perfect training platform for domestic workers.

All our courses are taught in English and proficiency in the English language is strongly recommended.

Cooking classes are intimate and kept to a maximum of 8.
