Come and join us at our award winning training campus in Coorparoo, which is less than 5 km from Brisbane CBD. We are situated in the grounds of two secondary schools: Coorparoo Secondary College and Brisbane School of Distance Education. It is a fantastic educational hub, with lots of green open spaces and gardens and is very student friendly.
You will love our 2 huge ‘state of the art’ professional kitchens and most of all our ‘outside’ and ‘inside’ classrooms on campus. We also have a new ‘Barista Training Centre on site .
We have a great coffee shop open daily for students and staff selling barista made Merlo coffee and lots of delicious food (mostly made by our ICE students). We also have a student canteen, which is open to all the high school students on campus as well as our ICE students. Both facilities sell healthy, tasty and nutritious food and students can relax during breaks in many of the outdoor areas, as well as in the seated area in the cafe. The campus also has a sports oval and basketball court that ICE students are allowed to use after school hours (3pm to 9pm).
We have ‘free’ onsite parking and a bus stop right outside the school. Coorparoo train station is a short 3-minute walk from our campus, making ICE super accessible for everyone. We also have disabled facilities when required by our students.
Our ‘outdoor’ campus extends when we take our students on excursions for some of our theory classes. Our students love visiting the produce markets, farms, abattoirs, fish auctions, dessert manufacturing factories and lots of other exciting venues.
We have created 3 of our own herb gardens and have recently completed a new market garden at ICE. Our students are responsible for planting; growing, watering and maintaining these, as part of their environmental studies with us. They can ultimately reap the benefits of their hard work by using all the produce in their practical classes. One of the gardens is called ‘a space to grow’ and it is ultimately designed for students to take ‘time out’ of their busy, stressful lives in the kitchen and help to improve their mental health while they are at school with us.
