In order to become a Chef, you need to meet following educational requirements:

1. You can go for a four years degree in Hotel Management that is being offered in most Hotel Management colleges in India. The educational qualifications are 12th minimum 50% aggregate marks. Some colleges conduct an entrance exam for that while others made the admissions on the basis of marks obtained in 12th standard.

2. You can also go for a three years diploma in Hotel Management offered by National Council of Hotel Management and Catering Studies.

3. There are many apprenticeship programs being offered to train chefs by professional culinary institutes. You can attend them after graduation also.

4. You need to do internship in reputed hotels during your degree or diploma, that will be a clear edge while looking for a job as a Chef.

5. Government of India offers several courses in food craft. There are 12 food craft institutes in India being run by the government.

6. There are many industry institutions that offer further study and training opportunities from time to time. You will get to know about all these programs once you enter the college.

Important Note: While selecting an institute for a degree/diploma in Hotel Management, please consider the reputation and the faculty there. The companies which hire Chefs pay a lot of attention to these factors. Therefore it becomes important for you as well to take these factors in to consideration prior to the admission.
