Alex's Success Story

Alex (Yusher) from China

Alex (Yusher) from China

Studying Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery

I come from Taiwan. I came to Australia in 2012 for working holiday. I then went back to my country after 2 years. But I miss the life in Australia very badly, and decided to come back to learn more skills for better life.

I really like cooking so I did some research and found out all the cooking schools in Brisbane. With my agent’s help, finally I decided to come to QAT. After 2 years of learning here, I have to say “Thank you QAT”. There are experienced trainers around, friendly staff to provide complete student services, classmates from worldwide and fully equipped training kitchen.

The most helpful thing to me, I shall say is work-based training. QAT cooperates with many reputable 5-star hotels in Brisbane. QAT helps me to get the chance to do my work-based training in Pullman Hotel. It was a challenge to me at first as that was my first time to work in the real commercial kitchen. But I used all the skills that I learnt from QAT Kitchen to get through the tasks at my workplace. The head chef of Pullman Hotel gave me a part-time job to work with his team and therefore I got to start my chef career early while studying Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery at QAT.
