William Angliss Institute

Industry solutions to cooks shortage

Manager Strategic Project Development at William Angliss Institute in Melbourne, Australia Jim Irwin presented to the AHA team on overcoming the challenges with the shortage of cooks and chefs in Australia.

Mr Irwin has worked in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry for the past 48 years and has been working on behalf of William Angliss Institute with both tourism and hospitality industries across the Asia Pacific region to help them address their employment and training needs.
He discussed strategies to address the shortage with encouraging home grown cooks to undertake apprenticeships including school leavers and career changers.
“Another way to address the cook shortages is using the 457 visa to import skilled cooks and chefs from overseas. We have a strict skills assessment process and also work to specific employer benchmark obligations,”
William Angliss Institute has been authorised by Trades Recognition Australia (TRA) to assess employer sponsored workers seeking to come to Australia under a temporary Visa 457 or on a permanent migration basis.
As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) working under a Deed with Trades Recognition Australia (TRA), the Institute is authorised to perform skills assessments for a number of nominated occupations for many countries including China, Vietnam, the Philippines and Thailand.
