Vocational School Studies Culinary Arts

Monday, November 1st, 2010

The number of people enrolled in college has grown over the last few years. The recession is driving many people already in a career, back to school to seek a more lucrative degree. What often goes unnoticed are vocational schools. Vocational school studies include many different topics including culinary arts. Vocational schools focus more on teaching marketable skills to students rather than giving you a well rounded education like a traditional college. All classes in the program are geared toward teaching you a new skill that you can apply immediately upon graduation.

Going to this type of school to study culinary arts can open many new opportunities for you. This training can prepare you to become a chef, baker, or restaurant manager. Typically, the schools are 18-24 months long. Classes generally include training in actual industrial style kitchens. Some schools even have their own student run restaurants for you to learn in.

Some schools offer an associates degree. However, some will only offer a certificate. It is important to determine your career path prior to trying to find a school. This will allow you to make sure the school’s program matches your desired outcome. Bear in mind, some positions in the restaurant industry will require you to have an actual degree. These schools offer a great alternative to the traditional four year school. Many of these programs are shorter due to the fact that they only teach you the skills required for that trade. If you are thinking of embarking on a new career, consider getting your training at a vocational school.
