If you had trouble at school with Math’s and English, but know that you need NCEA level 2 to get ahead, why not consider gaining the qualification in the kitchen? If you love food or cooking, or even just enjoy watching Master Chef, then perhaps Regent Training Centre’s hospitality programme is for you.  Gain New Zealand and National Certificates in the kitchen!


Everyone seems to be after a good coffee these days, and that is just one of the practical skills that you will gain with Regent Training. “Real life” food preparation for your fellow students and for company events, means that by the end of the programme not only are you one of the most well liked students on campus, you are also well placed to move onto higher level culinary learning, or even start employment in an entry level role in a kitchen.
