As you are no doubt aware Worldchefs announced the launch of our newly revamped Global Culinary Certification Platform on November 8th, - we are now open for business. We have worked closely with our partner City & Guilds Group to create this unique and innovative digital platform which allows chefs from around the world to be fully recognised for their experience gained while working in the industry. Using the online application platform, users will be able to submit their evidence and verify their expertise at nine different levels which include professional cook, master chef, master pastry chef and culinary educator.
The WORLDCHEFS Global Culinary Certification enables experienced chefs, cooks and culinary educators, as well as culinary students who are embarking on their career, to have their skills and experience validated by industry professionals at WORLDCHEFS earning the stamp of quality that the City & Guilds brand assures. More importantly the Culinary certification will be recognised globally, literally serving up a world of opportunities for chefs who want to travel and work internationally.
As Worldchefs President, I am incredibly proud of the work we have done with our accreditation partner City & Guilds. There is no other Chefs organisation that can offer this opportunity to their members and it is a unique development for our global hospitality Industry which has been seeking standards that reflect the highly mobile nature of the culinary workforce. There are millions of highly talented chefs and cooks just like you from around the world who cannot afford to take time out from their busy jobs, but still want the chance to demonstrate the wealth of experience they have gained over the years. We also want to recognise the fantastic work done by culinary educators who nurture and inspire the future generation of the chefs. This programme has been created for you and I would earnestly encourage you to consider becoming a Worldchefs Certified Chef and in doing so you will be joining the standard bearers of our Global industry.
