How Le Cordon Bleu prepares students for the workplace
Studying with Le Cordon Bleu offers you more than a degree - it gives you a career. Find out how our courses prepare students for the workplace.
Making the transition from student to full-time worker can be quite a life change for graduates. After a few years of study, entering the workplace can be intimidating - unless, of course, you studied at Le Cordon Bleu! Our programmes fully prepare students for the workplace. When you graduate you are highly-skilled and work-ready, so the transition from student to hospitality professional is seamless.
The programmes at Le Cordon Bleu are taught by some of the most experienced hospitality educators in the country. With years of industry experience, they bring a wealth of expertise and knowledge into the classroom.
You'll be learning from experts in their field, chosen to ensure students receive an engaging education of the highest quality. Your lecturers will share their invaluable industry insights through practical demonstrations and theory classes, so before you step out into the workforce you are prepared.
Le Cordon Bleu programmes offer a practical component called Work Integrated Learning (WIL). This industry placement allows students to apply their in-class theory in a practical setting. WIL acts as a bridge between your on-campus studies and your dream career.
In a bachelor's degree, students complete two individual six-month WIL placements, which allow you to gain real-world experience in a hospitality business. This workplace learning is the foundation for your career, increasing your employability and encouraging skill development and professional growth in a workplace setting.
On top of the confidence you’ll gain, industry placement is an opportunity to reflect on the direction you would like your career to take, and examine your personal strengths and weaknesses. The Work Integrated Learning team will prepare you for, and support you through the programme.
Le Cordon Bleu’s network of industry partners includes the finest establishments - you might find yourself in a luxury five-star hotel, restaurant or resort anywhere in Australia during your placement. During WIL you will network with industry professionals and meet organisations who are seeking graduates for their future workforce.
So before you even head out into the workforce, you are already equipped with powerful network connections.
Also, you graduate you gain lifelong membership to Le Cordon Bleu’s global alumni network. Le Cordon Bleu International has 20,000 graduates annually with students from over 20 countries in 35 institutes, so you will be connected to an extensive international network.
