Vocational Kitchen Training

Vocational Kitchen Training is Gastromotiva´s main course: it transforms the lives of many young people with a passion for cooking from families where income is no more than three minimum wages.

We believe education is one of the fundamental ingredients for the country´s social development and for this reason, we invest in vocational training of young talents seeking opportunities to grow.

Training is financed by companies, foundations, institutes and individuals who believe in our mission as well as the gastronomic market network which helps us place our apprentices in the job market.


The methodology

Training comprises the teaching of practical and theoretical gastronomy, always focusing on   professional development. The approach is on basic skills, confectionery, breadmaking and ecogastronomy. In addition, classes are offered in citizenship, hygiene and food safety, professional conduct and other subjects which give Gastromotiva´s training a unique advantage in the market, transmitting both personal and professional values to students. After four months, the aim is that the student should be ready to enter the job market with commitment, responsibility and the disposition to follow a career in the area.

Presently, classes take place at Anhembi Morumbi University (SP), Salvador University - UNIFACS (BA) and Augusto Motta University Center - UNISUAM (RJ), from Monday thru Friday, from 1:00p.m. to 5:00 p.m.. Applications may always be made through our website although selection processes are subject to the opening of new groups.
