Flemington program helps people learn career skills

February 9, 2013 by  

The road to becoming a highly-rated chef does not have to include a degree from an expensive culinary school, and students in Flemington have the opportunity to enroll in a culinary apprenticeship program that will give them on-the-job training and experience.

Hunterdon County Polytech Career Academy will host an information session for anyone interested in the school’s apprenticeship programs. The session will be led by Chef Paul Ingenito, who is an instructor at Polytech and the executive chef at the Perryville Inn.

The information session can be enhanced by Flemington brochure printers. A colorful, glossy brochure would provide students and potential apprentices with information about the program that they can take home.

The culinary apprenticeship program at Hunterdon County Polytech gives students the chance to work in an actual restaurant kitchen and earn money. At the same time, they are also taking classes in the culinary arts. The program has been described as an ideal training period for students who do not want to attend college right after high school or who do not have enough money to pay for a college degree. As a student completes more classes, he or she becomes eligible for a certificate or even an associate’s degree in culinary arts.

While the information session is free, reservations are required. Interested students can call 908-788-1119 ext. 2010 to reserve a spot. The session will take place at 6:00 pm on February 12 at the school’s Career Cafe. Hunterdon County Polytech is located at 10 Junction Road in Flemington.
