Early childhood and care
Our early childhood education and care courses cover topics that are essential in the early childhood and care industry. All students will gain exposure to leadership and management practices to support their career progression.
AMCA has partnered with one of Melbourne's premier early childhood education & care services centres: Bira Bira Early Learning Centre. This centre in Cheltenham is where AMCA students will fulfil 200 hours of compulsory pre-arranged work placement and gain a superior applied learning experience within a best-practice environment that puts the individual first.
Kitchen management and hospitality management
AMCA is the premiere cooking school specialising in Italian cuisine for international students in Australia.
At AMCA, students will learn authentic Italian cuisine with a focus on exploring the origin and tradition of a large variety of regional recipes, including the well known and lesser known. Students will also discover original recipes, the methodologies of Italian cooking, as well as the culture and culinary terminology.
We aim to provide students with the opportunity to experience an authentic journey into Italian culinary traditions. Our practical cookery courses are designed to equip students to become specialists of Italian cuisine, and as a result, be successful in the hospitality industry.
