Competence development

Towards competence optimization
In addition to the training given to its students, Institut Paul Bocuse also trains practicing teachers and professionals through tailor-made competence development modules.

Institut Paul Bocuse is the initiator of an alliance of 16 international Schools and Universities that mutually enrich each other through their respective customs, practices and pedagogical and societal values.
The Institut also embraces a logic of sharing the tradition and modernity of French know-how and has extended its field of action to other international academic partners from all the continents, selected for their innovation capacity and supporting them in their development, positioning and influence.
Together, we put into place new highly-specialized pedagogical practices thanks to the transfer of competencies that meet the current and future needs of the profession and country, and that foster the successful integration of young professionals. These practices respect the academic and cultural logics of each partnership from all standpoints.

The Validation of the Assets of Experience gives access to professional certification (degree or title) through the recognition of the competencies developed through various experiences.
In the framework of an individual or group initiative, Institut Paul Bocuse enables professionals to obtain the Title of international general manager: hotel and restaurant (level I), the Title of international hotel and restaurant manager (level II) or the Title of gastronomic cuisine and restaurant manager (level II).


The experts-trainers at Institut Paul Bocuse identify and understand the issues met by professionals in the hotel industry, food service, the culinary arts, the agro-foods industry and the professions of hospitality. The Institut therefore offers to develop the competencies of each co-worker, personalized or "à la carte" formula, by stimulating their creativity and motivation through redefining their role and a new vision of their profession on a daily basis.
