Participant Stories

This was my first taste of adult online learning and working professionally concurrently. The curriculum was well suited to my educational and career development needs. The materials were modern, current, objective and concise, all delivered by a very well educated facilitator. It took me only one week to adjust and was able to commit the entire course whilst running my own business. Thank you Cordon Bleu.

After researching, I enrolled in this course as I hoped it would help me reduce food waste and choose the correct food for my family. I was not disappointed. This is a great course to understand the impact of plant-based food and how to eat consciously. Additionally I enjoyed our live session and discussion forum, and bouncing ideas and learning with my peers. I would highly recommend this course. Thank you Sam!
