Culinary Arts and Nutrition
CC-JOBS has selected Culinary Arts and Nutrition as the first “Vocational skill” due to the fact that jobs in culinary arts are plentiful; for example in restaurants, hotels, eateries and markets etc., and because it is a vocation in which the youth can establish their own enterprise more easily due to the current positive economic environment within the Hospitality industry.
In the future the sponsorship program will be extended to other relevant subject areas and vocational skills.
