Jayden Winterburn, National Certificate in Hospitality/Diploma in Professional Chef Practice Graduate
"I wanted a qualification that can take me anywhere in the world. If you are thinking about study at EIT, go for it! Nothing should hold you back from what you want to do with your life".
I have been involved in the Hospitality Industry for 25 years with extensive experience in New Zealand and Australia and the UK.
My main subject areas are Front of House and Wine and Food Appreciation and I love passing on my experience and knowledge of these subjects to my students. Hospitality is an exciting, vibrant industry and to be able to convey this to our students and see them leave our programmes trained and ready to enter this industry makes my job very satisfying
