“One of my friends suggested WITT and its Graduate Diploma in Project Management. I searched for it on the internet and found it was the perfect combination of what I was looking for as it included subjects like supply chain and operations management.” 

Pratik gained employment after his course at Eltham based Carac Group, where he also completed his final intensive project internship.

Diploma in
Professional Cookery

"I came to WITT in 2008 to study Diploma in Professional Cookery, after completing my degree in hotel management from India. I wanted to experience a new culture and WITT offered the perfect platform to do so.

After completing my diploma, I worked in various restaurants around New Zealand. An opportunity to teach at WITT came up in 2015 and I haven’t looked back since. I enjoy being able to give back and see students flourish and push their boundaries.

I currently teach Level 5 Diploma in Professional Cookery where we work on 5 projects through the year where students explore food trends, local produce and learn to manage and run a kitchen efficiently. I enjoy being in class sharing experiences, skills and knowledge and learning from the students at the same time." Like they say “there is never a dull day in hospitality”

"I am fond of food and also we have a family catering business back in India. I was always interested and curious in knowing about western cuisines so I choose New Zealand, as it has multi-cultural society and restaurants.

I specifically choose WITT because the reviews were quite positive about the faculties here and I also liked the kitchen, it was huge compare to any kitchen I had seen so far.

My experience here has been quite good so far. The tutors are experienced and are approachable. The knowledge provided is also hands-on. And the management is very friendly and supportive."
