Catering Training & Professional Development

Among our other skills and services, MYA is also a major staff training organisation. On average, we train more than 1,000 industry professionals every year through our catering training and professional development courses.

All of our catering training courses are tailored to your individual needs. We don’t start by offering a fixed course, instead, we’ll identify your knowledge gaps and weaknesses, and seek to fill them with our tailored courses. We can train, motivate, and engage your employees at every level, from service assistants to supervisors and managers, all the way up to directors.

Here are just some of the courses that we’ve recently conducted for businesses looking to improve their employee’s skills:

  • Account management for facilities management professionals
  • Catering financial training (cost plus)
  • Catering financial training (commercial operators)
  • Strategic thinking for catering managers and head chefs
  • Menu engineering
  • Food safety for staff
  • Food safety for supervisors
  • Function/event management, preparation and planning
  • Intelligent craft change
  • Social media for caterers
  • Supervising and management courses
  • Team building (at every level)
  • Leadership & mentoring
  • Belbin Team Building.

Training is the key to individual and business growth. The effects of training are both immediate and lasting, meaning you can still benefit from the skills taught in years to come. Call MYA Consulting for an assessment of your business’s needs and a tailor-made professional development course to strengthen your weaknesses.
