Cooks Internship

Hospitality & Tourism
Check out our Social Feeds!

This Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) program has been designed to give students the required skills and experiences needed to be successful in the hospitality/culinary industry.

Successful students will be prepared to directly enter the workforce, begin an apprenticeship, enter community college or head to university.

Students will be eligible to graduate with a Specialist High Skills Major and could receive advanced standing in the 2-year apprenticeship program at St. Lawrence College.

Students will be exposed to a variety of classroom experiences, competitions, community events, field trips, and co-op placements that will prepare them for a post-secondary destination.

Students will interact with guest Chefs from our community who demonstrate cooking techniques and discuss the pathway to become a chef.

The Industrial Kitchen Classroom provides a unique experience designed to develop culinary competency daily.

Students will learn to plan and prepare meals that are served in the school operated cafeteria. The Community Lunch project allows students to interact with their customers and is a practical way to understand all roles that are involved to create a successful business.

Co-op hours inside a professional kitchen enable the student to develop the basic understanding of food preparation and presentation skills as well as become more employable in the Hospitality Industry.

Students will spend 1 week at St. Lawrence College, which allows students to leap ahead in college through the Ontario Youth Apprenticeship Program (OYAP).
