What is the Occupational Certificate: Chef

This qualification has been developed for professionals in the Hospitality and catering industry. It brings together theoretical, practical and workplace elements of food preparation and service. This qualification also provides for a direct pathway from entry as a Kitchen hand to qualifying as a Chef.

The South African Chefs Association (SACA), the recognised professional body, felt that due to an increase in demand for chefs in the industry and an increase of uptake by learners it would be the most appropriate starting point to develop the Chef qualification. The Professional Body felt that no matter where a Chef worked, they should be able to do the specific skills that the employer requires.

The supervisory and financial aspects have been included in this qualification, although not currently part of the responsibilities of the Chef. A learning pathway is embedded within the qualification which will allow for a learner to work as a Kitchenhand/Commis during their first and second year, Commis/Demi during their second and third year to qualify as a Chef.

Once qualified as a Chef, and gaining sufficient working experience it may lead to promotion and further career advancement as a Sous Chef and/or Executive chef. These occupations are registered designations with the Professional Body. This qualification will professionalise the industry and is applicable to all sectors of Professional Cookery.
