As an employer, I can definitely see a difference between graduates who have entered a competition such as Toque d’Or and those who haven’t...

Toque d’Or graduates have a greater level of confidence and problem solving ability, following their learnings from the various hurdles they have faced. They also have a greater sense of where their own skills lie within the industry, and as a result, feel happier and more settled in their roles.

Right now, we need to encourage talent into our industry, and this is what Toque d’Or is all about. Not only is the competition innovative and inspirational, but it supports emerging talent by offering students unique experiences and challenges they would never have encountered in the classroom.

Vitally, Toque d’Or also brings to life their enthusiasm and hunger for the Industry, and this kind of passion is invaluable.
