Course Structure

If you are interested in doing the foundation module (module one) for home and family use you are very welcome to just do that module. Once you have completed module one you can choose to do modules 2 to 5 in any order.

If you are planning to do the whole training in order to be a vegan chef or to enhance your career the training comprises nine modules with two to four units in each.

It is a requirement that you attend the foundation module first and modules 6, 7, 8 & 9 at the end of the training. However modules 2 to 5 can be taken in any order. This way you can complete the course in six quick months or you can choose to do the course over two years. You can choose to pay for the whole course up front and receive a 20% discount on the price or you can pay for a module at a time.

Class Structure

On each and every day of each and every module you will experience hands on cooking. Within the cost of the course you will make morning tea or breakfast and lunch for yourself and your peers. You will be required to complete tasks in between each module in order to finish the module. Some of these tasks will involve work experience (for those training for home purpose the experience will be at home).

The units will run from 8:30 am to 5 pm or 9 to 5 with a 20 minute morning tea break and a 60 minute lunch break. Half of the lunch break will be communal lunch and the other half a proper break. In each module there will be a farmers market shop, which will mean the day will start at 6:50am and finish at 3:30pm.

Where is the training held?

The training is held in one of the most evolved areas in Australia in regards to organic and ethical food. Byron Bay is a very supportive community for healthy living and healthy eating, with four local weekly farmers markets. The courses will be held in different venues in the Byron Bay shire.

Produce used during the training

The tuition fees include all produce that we use throughout the course. We will cook during every unit of every module. Sometimes we will cook morning tea and lunch or breakfast and lunch. You will also get to take food home for your dinner each day. The produce used will be organic and where possible will be locally sourced and of a very high ethical standard. The fruit and veg will be seasonal.

Equipment and clothing

All equipment used during the training on site will be provided, knives and aprons will be provided up until module four of the training. From module four through to module 9 you will need to provide your own knife and aprons. However it is strongly recommended that you purchase your own knives for the whole training as it is nice to have your own knife. Once you have enrolled in the course we will send you information on how to choose the best knife for you.
 
You will need to dress to the health and hygiene safety, which will be sent to you prior to the course starting. You will however not have to wear a uniform from module one through to module 5. This course encourages you to work out what style of clothing you will be wearing when you set up your own business and if you are doing the training for personal reasons then you will be required to wear casual clothes in compliance with health and safety standards. However having said all of this if you envision your business to be one where you will wear traditional chef’s uniforms then you are more than welcome to wear that to the training. We respect the individual.  During work experience and catering for the community dinners you will be required to wear black clothing (not leggings unless they are covered by a black skirt).
 
For the graduation you will be required to wear black for Men this will be black trousers and black top or chef's jacket. For women you will be required to wear black top and black leggings or stockings and will wear Veet's Vegan Cooking School work skirt which you can borrow for the day. You will also be given a black chefs hat to use during the graduation. The work skirt and black attire symbolises the break in tradition from the regular chef uniform and a more matriarchal way of dressing in the kitchen as well as symbolising that you are ready to go out into the world in your own way.
