CIA students are well prepared and knowledgeable. They stand substantially above other institutes and are the future leaders of the industry.
It is a pleasure to work with the students each year, when they come to spend their final internship with us. I feel they are the best students from any of the culinary schools in Singapore. I have also worked in many different countries and I would also say the calibre of students is some of the best I have experienced.
CIA Singapore has provided the most well-prepared culinary interns I have ever encountered. Their basis of knowledge is broad and is accompanied by practiced skills and technique. Their workplace professionalism serves as an example for all. During their internship tenure, they show remarkable ability to build upon the foundations learned in school to take on greater responsibility with demonstrable success.
When a CIA graduate joins us, they are ready to go. They have strong cooking fundamentals and have a clear understanding of expectations and what it takes to be successful in this industry.
I love interacting with our mentors, professors and chefs, as they make lessons so engaging and practical. I was constantly challenged to push boundaries and have built my confidence in planning and executing arduous tasks. Now, I have an improved understanding, admiration and respect for this industry, and my craft.
