Congratulations to Commodore Hotel Jnr Chef de Partie – Charlene Fortune who successfully completed her City & Guilds Diploma in Professional Cookery at the SA Chef’s Academy.
This is a 6 month course consisting of weekly theory and practical classes culminating in the final examinations for both. Cherlene achieved an overall percentage pass of 83%, and was one of 30 participants on the course which is a part-time course well suited to people already working in industry.
As part of the Hotel’s focus to assist our staff in gaining qualifications and to address future succession planning and skills development Charlene was the first last year to undertake this journey. We are very proud of her achievement given that she completed this whilst still working full time.
