Initiative between Hospitality Group Training and the Department of Further
Employment, Education, Science and Technology. We would

The Program had a successful retention rate of 79.11% for commercial cookery apprentices in South Australia.

the program has assisted chefs in many different aspects of the industry by
offering open communication and sharing information between mentors and chefs,
apprentices, parents, employers, brokers, hospitality teachers and joint
