Students build their careers in all aspects of the hospitality industry, including: restaurants / hotels / game lodges / guests houses / catering companies / cruise liners / yachts etc.
As each field is suited to specific students, Warwick’s helps to guide graduates in the right direction to build a career path by gaining the right experience along their journey through the culinary industry.

At Warwick’s, we value a high level of professional pride. Each member of our team of tutors is an expert in their own field and are eager to share their knowledge and expertise to mold young and upcoming chefs. We believe in teaching our students to work with accuracy while under pressure on a daily basis, when doing practical training and gaining experience at the school’s on-site restaurant & function venue. This helps to prepare the students for the internship period that they will complete in the industry during the latter part of the diploma course.
We encourage our students to be creative during their practical sessions and experiment with different techniques and trends. Our aim is to guide our students to have a solid knowledge of the ‘cheffing’ field and to equip them with a wide range of perfected skills to ensure their success in the hospitality industry.
