NorQuest launches a fully-funded Foundations of Cooking program

February 19, 2020

NorQuest College has announced that it will be offering a 20-week Foundations of Cooking program to learners at no cost this Spring. Noting that Edmonton’s unemployment rate is among the highest in Canada, NorQuest states that the program has been fully funded by the Government of Alberta to help graduates find fast-paced employment in the food service industry. The program includes the essential skills needed for success in the industry and required by professional chefs and cooks, such as kitchen safety, knife technique, and practical elements of cooking from scratch. Students will also have access to a six-week work experience and will receive support for a job placement. NorQuest (AB)
