City & Guilds are a global leader in skills development, providing services to training providers, employers, and trainees across a variety of vocational sectors to meet the needs of today’s workplace. Our qualifications and apprenticeships are valued by employers across the world, helping individuals develop their talents and abilities for career progression.

The workplace environment is changing rapidly, and employers are finding it more challenging to attract and retain the right talent. Cultivating and building this talent from the foundation up is the key to success. But how do providers ensure quality delivery that leads to career success for learners?

In 2017, Cilantro Culinary Academy was been awarded the International Centres of Excellence (Asia Pacific) by City & Guilds, UK.

Cilantro Culinary Academy is the very first private vocational culinary and pastry academy in Malaysia being awarded with WACS Recognition of Quality Culinary Education Award. Today, they are still maintaining a very positive working relationship with WACS in Paris, France working in partnership with City & Guilds.

As a winning vocational academy, they recognise the global demand on skilful and knowledgeable chefs around the world. Cilantro Culinary Academy partners with International Management Institute, Switzerland (IMI) to prepare their students for their BA (Hons) Degree in International Culinary Arts. With this opportunity, they continue in gaining good market share nationally.

Cilantro Culinary Academy has been constantly preparing new strategies to integrate into a new learning system that would help students to not only acquire new skills but to create a fun learning environment. This project will be on the pipeline which will be introduced as soon as possible. We believe such learning method will benefit learners no matter where they are located.
