In our world today, everything is moving online, from banking to television and even friendships! Rapidly joining the online community is education.

The internet is a place where anything is now possible, including receiving a formal qualification. Today some of the best universities and colleges take advantage of the ability to teach students online.

It doesn’t matter what profession you may be in, but it’s important to get out of a career rut or stop doing the job merry go round, where you hop from job to job.

Online studies are perfect for so many types of students and include those who:
– are just starting their careers and want to add skills and qualifications to their CV
– want to increase their skill set mid-career
– need a career change to another field of work

Below are the reasons why studying online is the best option for the career of today:

1: Flexibility

The biggest complaint in my 15 years as a professional career advisor, has been an issue of time. Everyone wants to study further and even if you have the money, when can you find the time to attend classes in the evening or on the weekend.

If you study online, the class comes to you. You don’t need to worry about traffic getting to class, who is going to babysit your sick child or what time your shift ends. Adjust this to the world of being a chef and it includes late night shifts; then studying becomes something you can only do before you start a career, rather than during it.

Thanks to technology, you can now study a full qualification or short course from the comfort of your home. Study on your phone, tablet or computer.

2: Price

No one will argue with the fact that if you are more qualified, you are more likely to earn more and be considered for a promotion.

However, with the cost of education continuously increasing and if you add in inflation, then you have to be very careful about how to earn that certificate.

Online programmes fees are lower than traditional face-to-face classroom learning.

Another aspect to consider is commuting costs and course material required for the programme. With online learning, the study material is packaged as part of the online platform.

Studying with International Culinary Studio allows you to study at affordable monthly or weekly payment terms.

3: Choice of Programmes

You can receive the same quality education studying online, compared to someone who attended a college. Today online studies can be done from the comfort of your kitchen or home.

Now online colleges can provide fully accredited qualifications online. Some of these are even recognized internationally, meaning you could work anywhere in the world. You could also then continue your studies with the same college but in a completely different country.

With Accredited Qualifications in Cooking, Professional Qualifications in Culinary Arts and Professional Short Courses, International Culinary Studio has the right certification programme you are looking for.

4: Student Support

With the advancement of online learning portals, you can now join a community while studying. Most online programmes have live video conferences, where you can chat with your online tutor or classmates.

Some online learner portals even allow students to like and review their peer’s assignment submissions. International Culinary Studio has a world-class Learner Management System (LMS) which incorporates both the ability to do peer reviews and like a peers submission.

5: Career Progression

If you are already working, then studying online is probably the best way to advance your career. You can continuously add skills or qualifications to your CV, all while practically applying what you are learning online to your day job.

Just being in the process of studying further shows your employer that you are ambitious and hard working. You will be first in line for promotions, salary increases and more.

Why not surprise your Executive Chef with the latest cooking techniques, by studying a full qualification or short course with International Culinary Studio.

Ryan Jacobs is a freelance blogger, while running his online college. He has been a professional Student Advisor for 3 of the biggest universities and colleges (in South Africa) over the last 15 years and has the honour of taking 14 and a half years to complete his degree with the University of South Africa (UNISA)

          If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to Contact Us our team is on hand to assist you with everything you may need.

          Congratulations in taking the first step to success with one of the World’s Top Culinary Qualifications from International Culinary Studio. We are proud to be part of your journey.

          The CRT process enables students to apply to have their previous work experience and education assessed. On successful completion of the assessments online, via our Learner Management System, you may be eligible to complete a final Internationally recognised City & Guilds or New Zealand Culinary Qualification.

          Each level within the City & Guilds and New Zealand Framework of Qualifications will require evidence of work or previous qualifications to support the application.  This is done through proof of previous education..  The CRT assessments should be in line with the level of credits sought.

          Course Duration:
          The RPL and Cross Credits assessment is initially conducted online where you can also submit all supporting documents. There may be a skills test or exam required. The length of time the process of assessment takes will depend on the level of experience and/or other qualifications and previous experience.
          Course Outline:

          The following process will be undertaken to measure if the student meets the specific learning outcomes required for the specific qualification they are wanting RPL or Credit for. The process is as follows:

          • Identify what the candidate knows and can do
          • Match the candidates skills, knowledge and experience to specific standards and the associated criteria of a qualification
          • Assess the candidate against the standards
          • Credit the candidates for skills, knowledge and experience built up through formal, informal and non-formal learning that occurred in the past

          There are a number of sources of evidence for assessing competence, which include:

          • On-job experience
          • Questioning the learner about the task
          • Written evidence that the learner is able to undertake the task in terms of previous work experience
          • Practical Tasks
          • Case studies
          • Preparation of written reports
          • Evidence from workplace appraisal
          • Interpretation of the required information
          • Evidence of minutes, notes and working papers relating to meetings
          • Verification of completed work
          • Training records
          • Expert Witness Testimonials
          • In-company short courses assessed according to registered standards
          • Certificates and Qualifications

          Regardless of the source of evidence, the assessment should be to the same rigorous quality as evidence obtained through any other process.  Learning outcomes will be deemed to have been met when evidence is:

          • Valid; does the evidence relate to the specific outcomes to be assessed?
          • Authentic; can the evidence be attributed to the candidate?
          • Sufficient; is there enough evidence to meet all the criteria needed to certify the candidate as competent?
          • Current;  is the evidence related to current competence?
          • Reliable; should the assessment be repeated, would the assessor arrive at the same assessment decision?

          Each candidate will be required to prepare a portfolio of evidence that will comprise the collection of evidence for each unit of competence.  If however, evidence from the RPL is only sufficient to cover one or more learning outcomes, or to partly meet the need of a learning outcome, then additional assessment methods should be employed to generate sufficient evidence on which to base a safe assessment decision. In no circumstance does the RPL or Cross Credit Process mean that any required qualification summative assessments can be avoided, e.g. mandatory exams, practical / theory test or assignments.

          Outcome Options:

          In the event that the student is successful with the RPL assessment, they may be able to enrol in the follow up or corresponding programme as an RPL student. At a cost of $2500 for City and Guilds Culinary Qualifications.

            The investment includes:
          • Personal online login to our Learner Management System, all assessment check points
          • Online ePortfolio
          • Final City & Guilds Assessment
          • City & Guilds Practical and Theory examinations
