Gap Year Courses

Many people choose to take a gap year, whether after school, university or as a career break. A cookery course taken during this time is something that can give you skills to last a lifetime. Whether you are travelling abroad, looking for employment during this year or both, a cookery course at Edinburgh New Town Cookery School in the heart of Scotland’s capital city, will equip you with the practical skills that potential employers are looking for. We have teachers who have spent time cooking abroad and have a wealth of experience to pass on to students.

A popular area of employment during this time is working as a Chalet Host in the Alps. As part of a gap year it is a great experience to work as a Chalet girl or boy. Other opportunities include working in Villas, Shooting and Sporting Lodges, Yachts in the Mediterranean or Caribbean and in other areas of the world. Having an employable skill can help to fund the gap year too and we have links with agencies who employ people for these sectors.

If you are from outside Edinburgh and want to spend some time taking a course in one of the United Kingdom’s most beautiful cities we can help you to find accommodation for your course.
