What qualifications will I gain?
Upon completion of our professional Cordon Bleu Diploma or Intensive Cordon Bleu Diploma, our students can now graduate with TWO separate qualifications, with no additional exams to sit.
The first, Tante Marie's internationally acclaimed Cordon Bleu Diploma is an industry recognised professional qualification. It is a qualification which sets the standards in global culinary training and has been offered at Tante Marie since 1954.
The second is the Confederation of Tourism and Hospitality’s Level 4 Diploma in Professional Culinary Arts. CTH and Tante Marie created this new qualification together in 2010
. This optional qualification is regulated People First, the Sector Skills Council and Ofqual and carries 96 credits within the government’s Qualifications Credit Framework. This may enable students to gain credit towards any future qualifications they may wish to take, be they at university or colleges around the world.
