About Us

NDS Chefs Academy was established in 2013 to reduce the gap of students who
could not be accepted in the Traditional University due to their inability to meet the University APS Score or application standards/requirements.

We pride ourselves with our excellent customer and personal service which ensures we meet and exceed our customer expectations.

We are committed to building long term relationship with our customers and businesses in the different industries that we operate in, so as to enhance and promote superior service excellence and customer experience for their customers.

NDS executive leadership has 20 years experience in Hospitality, Tourism, and Information Technology, business management as well as Education and Training. The outstanding results and services attained through focused leadership, which is hands on and with the out most goal of building long term relationship with customers and clients bears testimony to the caliber of the company’s leadership.


Assessment is the mechanism we use to test that the required skills have been imparted and that the learner has achieved the required competency level for the qualification. We use qualified, well experienced assessors most of whom have been in the Higher Education sector for more than 15 years or more.

The company goes through a rigorous exercise to assess and select its staff to ensure a quality training and learning experience for our learners.




NDS Chefs Academy is a City and Guilds Approved institution and is accredited with CATHSSETA (Culture, Art, Tourism, Sports, Sector of Education and Training Authority).

NDS Chefs Academy is affiliated with South African Chefs Association. The qualifications offered provide the students with world-wide exposure and the students stand a chance to be employed anywhere in the world. We are proud to say we offer State of the Art qualification.
