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!

2012 NOTEWORTHY ACHIEVEMENTS CITY &  GUILDS  ICA  FINAL  EXAM  RESULTS   The  ICA  is  the  ONLY  culinary  institution  in  South  Africa  with  a  100%  pass   rate!    20  MERITS  (65%  -­‐   79%)  and  25  DISTINCTIONS  (80%  -­‐   100%)  have   been  awarded  as  final  examination  results  to  students  by  City  &  Guilds,   the   International   certification   service   recognized   in   more   than   100   countries   worldwide.     The   ICA   is   also   the   ONLY   school   to   yield   an   incredible   100%   DISTINCTION   rate  in  Pâtisserie  with  a  class  average  of   90%!     Congratulations   to   all   our   lecturers   and   students   who   have   worked   extremely   hard   during   2012   to   achieve   these   outstanding   results.     We   look  forward  to  the  same  exceptional  outcomes  in  2013.    

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.
