The Education committee is inspired by the learning and training of our trade. We represent Chefs, Cooks, Apprentices and culinary students from a federal government level to our local communities. We are focused on modernising, updating and keeping our Chefs community informed of industry and educational change as well as promoting International Chefs Day (October 20th)  

We will ensure that you receive up to date information on upcoming courses, upskilling, masterclasses, micro credentials and ACF Chefs Certification.

If you are a working Chef or Culinary educator and a fully paid member of the ACF and would like to be a part of the education committee contact your state director for more information.
