Camp Cook Practicum

Course number: 744-202

Course length: 60 hrs

Course description:

This portion of the program is designed to provide the student with hands-on experience in a professional kitchen environment. It will also expose the student to the requirements and expectations of a working kitchen, as well as prepare them for employment after the completion of the program. In collaboration with external partners, students will be given an opportunity to demonstrate their skills in a ‘real life’ setting. Participants will also have a chance to demonstrate teamwork, communication and interpersonal skills. The student will be placed into an entry-level position in an operational kitchen where they will be challenged to perform technical work, learn within the workplace, and communicate effectively with other professionals. Direction, mentoring, and supervision, will be provided by the practicum provider. The practicum provider will also monitor the student’s progress in consultation with the Cooking Instructor. At the end of the practicum, the student’s supervisor will provide an evaluation of the student and an attendance record. The practicum host may or may not choose to compensate the student for time spent on their site. This will be pre-arranged prior to the student attending their first assignment.
