What does the curriculum contain?

This course leads to a Professional Chef level 3 diploma recognised by the Hospitality industry.  You can follow the level 3 course when you have succesfully finnished the Professional Chef level 2 course. During the course as a Professional Chef (level 3) you have practical classes once a week at the Horeca Academie. The rest of the time you spend working in a kitchen as an apprentice chef. For the whole year you will attend a special apprenticeship program in a restaurant. At the Horeca Academie, all our courses have been developed in close collaboration with the industry. Our teachers are professionals from the industry. We are committed to innovation and stay on top of any new developments in the culinary industry. At the Horeca Academie our curriculum contains mainly a hands on and practical approach.


Throughout the 10 months tuition, you attend classes once a week. Always the same day in the week, so this does not affect your apprentice schedule.

The classes are threefold.

1. Restaurant class: You cook for our guests in the Horeca Academie restaurant. This is a three-course meal based on the themes of the curriculum.

2. Cooking-Lab class: Again you cook, this time not for guests, but to explore and to experiment with the products that fit the curriculum theme. You start this class with examining the product table. What is it? How do I keep it fresh? What can I do with it?

3. Immerse knowledge class: any subject that needs a little bit more attention is handled in this class. Subjects like special allergies or hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) are being treated in the immerse knowledge class.
