A want to be a Chef??

Hi, Iím 18 years old and Iíve just finished school in Australia (Year 12) and I would like to become a Chef, I applied for a very good but very expensive private college course for cooking, I think it would be very worthwhile taking this course, but my parents and family are telling me that a private college is too expensive and i will not learn as much as going into an apprenticeship or just starting out in the industry, but my parents donít even have to pay for the course, I have to, but Iím still thinking whether or not to take the course?

Any Advice???

Thanks

Re: A want to be a Chef??

You should do an apprenticeship. You get paid whilst you learn, you get a recognised qualification at the end and you get experience. You may pay for an expensive college and then realise you don't want to be a chef anymore. That'd be a waste of money. Why not learn and get paid for learning? That's the better option.

Apprenticeship with "big" people in the industry is the best route you can take, you also learn real world skills at the same time.

College is a scam, they just want your money.

Shellyyy is infamous around these parts




Re: A want to be a Chef??

Go for what you think is right, especially if you can do things independently from your parents.

I second it

Do not waste money on college, you'll not learn much as you would under an apprentice.

As someone who has both worked in the food industry as well as gone to culinary school: you're better off just getting a job rather than wasting money on culinary school classes. Getting working knowledge is a lot more useful in the field. You can go to school later to perfect techniques.
