From Fine Dining Lovers - December 5, 2017

Despite the growing cooking craze, the sector is too often neglected when it comes to formal education. To reverse the trend, Jean-Michel Blanquer, the Minister of National Education in France, has tasked chefRegis Marcon with a mission.

Working alongsideCline Calvez, MP En Marche, the three Michelin-starred French chef from Le Clos des Cmes hasbeen allotted three months to draw up an inventory and make proposals to improve vocational training in the industry in Francein a report to be delivered early next year.

"We need real reform, as far as the orientation of the young people is concerned, it is obvious that we often come into the business by default. You are good at school, you continue your general studies, as if it were. From the outset, many of us are far from our trades" lamented the chef. "The minister is very open to these changes, we want to think about vocational training, the baccalaureate, to ensure that there are bridges everywhere."

Even if the government did not explain why it had appealed to Regis Marcon and not another chef, the man in question has an idea: "I conducted a [mission] 4 years ago on training in the hotel and restaurant trades, we have taken measures and I have training in this field. It is a duty when we see the volume of young people without training."
