Industry Internship & Work Experience Placement Program

ICCA Dubai’s IWP (Industry Internship / Work Experience Placement) Program is an industry integration initiative specially designed for students wishing to join the industry as Professional Chefs by way of regular employment or an internship leading

The IWP Program is separately conducted in addition to the 620 hours of intensive on-campus guided learning and training, which comprise our Professional Program.

The IWP arrangements are in the form of either regular employment to begin with, or an industry internship generally of 6 to 12 months’ duration, successful completion of which would lead the student chef to a regular work placement.
