Education and Training Requirements

High School

To prepare for a career as a cooking instructor, take high school courses in family and consumer science, English, math, business, and science. Since many cooking terms are derived from the French language, you might want to take French. Other foreign languages that might be useful include Spanish and Italian. Speech and communications courses will help you prepare for speaking in front of groups of people. Teachers use computers to do research, write reports, and calculate and report grades. Increase your computer comfort level by taking all the computer science classes your school has to offer. Finally, take as many culinary arts courses as you can; these may be offered by your school, but also by local community organizations or your park district.
