FCAS Restaurant Internship program is intended for those who want to work in an Italian restaurant, who work already as a chef, who aspires to open their own restaurant in the future, to become a food coordinator or gourmet reporter, etc.
Our collaborating restaurants include traditional restaurants, pizza restaurants (“pizzeria”), gelato shops (“gelateria”), pastry shops, and family-owned restaurants.
The period of Internship can vary from 4 months to 2 years, and, depending on the chosen period, it is possible to intern in more than one restaurant.
Many students who aim to become professional chefs choose to join the Restaurant Internship program after completion of the 2-month Italian Cuisine Professional Chef Training, to put into practice the knowledge and skills they gained through the course, and to acquire experiences as well as to network.
3 strength of FCAS Internship programs
1 – Practical Skills to Stand Out
Our internship program aims at acquiring practical skills to stand out from others. Unlike most “internship” that uses students as part-time job, just doing routine and simple jobs, our Internship program students will be doing gradually challenging job with responsibility, because it is as a part of Education Program of the school. Not only to brush up your skills at actual restaurants, but it is also useful to gain a professional network in the field.
2- Flexible language course option – 0~6 months Italian language lessons
All the communication in a restaurant is in Italian, so restaurant internship also requires enough Italian language skills. If you already have enough experience in cooking in a restaurant in your country, therefore do not take the Chef training course, which includes Italian language lessons, you can just study Italian language for a necessary period, and then start Internship.
3- More than 200 restaurants in various fields
We have hundreds of restaurants from various fields that accept our students as interns. The Internship coordinator can recommend you to a restaurant in the field of your interest or students can ask to do internship at a certain restaurant. If the company accepts the terms, you will be interviewed and the Internship will be determined. All the interns will be registered officially, to guarantee the terms agreed.
If you change your internship, you will be charged € 400 for each change registration fee.
It is also good to have an internship in one place and gain experience. We also recommend changing your internship every four months to experience the benefits of different workplaces (restaurants). Please decide according to your wishes.
For the second and subsequent internships, you will need to find and decide on your own internship destination.
