Cookery Trainer in The Hook and the Cook TV Show

The Hook and the Cook

William Angliss Institute Cookery instructor Paul Breheny is "The Cook" in 7 TWO television show The Hook and The Cook with fisherman Scotty Lyons.

The Hook and the Cook combines fishing and cooking seafood in a new way with the crew travelling to a new destination every episode.

Originally from the United Kingdom, Paul moved to Australia with his Australian wife in 1990 and so began his love affair with seafood.

In addition to his work at William Angliss Institute, Paul co-owns multi-award winning restaurant Fratelli Del Mare at Cronulla Beach, NSW.

Catch The Hook and the Cook every Sunday from 11:00am on 7 TWO.

Discover Hospitality with a Cookery Apprenticeship through the Skills Pathway Project

Discover Hospitality

Restaurant & Catering Australia (R&CA) in collaboration with William Angliss Institute is set to welcome even more students on the pathway to success with the new Certificate III in Commercial Cookery. The new program enables students the opportunity to become a trade qualified cook while employed in a commercial kitchen environment one year less than the traditional pathway. As part of the recently launched Skills Pathways project, the initiative aims to make apprenticeship more attractive to those aspiring to enter the industry, increase the quality of apprentices and up skill chefs and supervisors.

The $7 million project, which has been co-funded by the Australian Government’s Accelerated Australian Apprenticeships initiative, is based on competency rather than time. Restaurant & Catering CEO John Hart observed that apprenticeship is the most effective training pathway particularly for young people entering the hospitality industry. He noted that ‘the on and off the job learning provides the most ‘job-ready’ graduates’. “The Skills Pathways project supports William Angliss Institute hospitality apprentices, cooks and chefs in completing their training and progressing their careers. "Australia has a very good reputation in this industry and skills gained can be transferred to any part of the world - in fact they are sought after”, said Mr Hart.

The Institute expects the Certificate lll in Commercial Cookery to be very successful with up to 115 apprenticeships available in Victoria.

“As Restaurant & Catering’s preferred training partner, we’re looking forward to working together to monitor the progress of our apprentices and mentor them through their learning,” said Mark Agius, Manager – Centre for Food Trades and Culinary Arts, William Angliss Institute.

“We offer a range of support services to students on campus but for apprentices who undergo a lot of their training in the workplace, the Skills Pathways will improve engagement and give them the chance to fully benefit from all our trainers have to offer.”

Skills Pathways Ambassador Dan Hong is confident in the program to help increase the number of apprentices currently working in his Merivale kitchens, with only two among his 40 employees. “The Skills Pathways program has all the ingredients for the perfect recipe - I wish I had this sort of support when I was completing my apprenticeship”, said Mr Hong.

The program is supported by the Discover Hospitality website, which is the first online recruitment platform where users can store their electronic CV and supporting information in a free, convenient and secure ‘Skills Passport’. Employers can track an employee’s training and career achievements on the website, which helps connect them with apprentices and chefs. Those interested in any of the Skills Pathways are encouraged to register their interest at www.discoverhospitality.com.
