SCAFA, Dubai’s School of Culinary And Finishing Arts is a full-service culinary arts training institute offering the complete spectrum of culinary arts courses. We have full-time education programmes for students aspiring to become professional chefs and advanced programmes for chefs looking to upskill their abilities. The School also offers professional courses for students seeking professional skills but lacking the time to commit to full-time education, thereby offering these individuals an opportunity to pursue their ambition on a part time basis. Under the expert guidance of our instructors, students will learn practical skills that will become second nature.
SCAFA operates teaching restaurants at its campuses enabling students to learn advanced skills in a real world environment whilst pursuing the advanced study programmes.
SCAFA has a special partnership with the Business & Hotel Management School’s (B.H.M.S.) Culinary Academy in Lucerne, Switzerland.
