With a 40-year experience in training professionals in Culinary Arts, and in answer to the ever increasing demands, the Ecole Lenôtre has developed an Intensive Professional Training program which quickly gives you the opportunity to start a career in cuisine.
The Grand Bachelor has been developed for people willing to train or reinvent themselves in cuisine:
- Amateurs who wish to start a new career.
- Young professionals who have already attended an apprenticeship school.
- Former professionals who no longer work in the food sector.
The goal of this Intensive Professional Training is to enable you to access to a high level of qualification, without going through a long initial training. This unique program is intended to adults.Download the documentation
A TRAINING DIVIDED INTO TWO DIFFERENT PARTS
Training sessions take place in classrooms that are fully equipped with professional material. Sessions are practical, with a maximum of 24 students per class. Each student works alone or in a group on the different recipes. At the beginning of each week, every student receives a folder in which all recipes are presented. During sessions, students are free to take notes and pictures, to illustrate recipes.Training sessions are taught in French; however, recipes are available in English. During the second part of the training program, students will have the opportunity to meet Professionals. It is good occasion to develop contacts that may be useful in a future career. It is also an ideal moment to share experience. At the end of each training week, recipes that have been prepared by the students are presented through a buffet. This presentation enables students to evaluate the quality of the products on which they have worked. It is also a way for the students to view, over the weeks, the progression of their knowledge.
