Welcome 2013 intake! An ICA student in pursuit of Excellence understands that he/she is always striving to achieve a standard not accomplished by anyone previously in a particular field or area of culinary excellence. It is about learning how never to be complacent with mediocrity, but to stop at nothing, never accepting anything but the BEST!

ICA KYLEMORE FRONT OF HOUSE PROGRAMME In keeping with its social ethos, a substantial portion of the ICA’s resources are used to assist deserving students who do not have the financial means to obtain a tertiary qualification. The Kylemore Front of House bursary programme is one such initiative. All students on this programme completed the International City & Guilds examination in Food and Beverage Service (7066-‐001) and once again the whole group accomplished either Distinctions or Merits with a class average of 82%. These graduates are now equipped with an invaluable qualification and have become sought after employees in the hospitality industry.
