By performing practical tasks, they will supplement their knowledge with new practical techniques and approaches.
- improved foreign language competence from its practice in a real work environment;
- raising cultural awareness and improving intercultural skills;
- acquisition of new knowledge and skills in the field of culinary art and in particular molecular cuisine;
- getting to know and acquiring skills related to innovation in the cuisine of the two host countries;
- development of personal skills – teamwork, leadership skills, perfection, etc.
WHY CULINARY ART?
The academy prepares mainly specialists for the restaurant business. The profession is modern and popular, but to be successful in the field, it takes a combination of practical experience, knowledge and skills. Training in a world-class restaurant chain will give the participants great competitive advantage and practical experience from a real workplace. This will help increase the employment of young people and the smooth transition from education to the work market.
