Guvon Academy moves to new home next to Eagle Canyon

Guvon Academy started 2017 fresh – not only with new E-learning offerings and exciting workshops but also brand new premises, right next to Eagle Canyon Estate in Honeydew.


“Our new location of the campus gives us a competitive edge”, says Adrie van der Merwe, Director at Guvon Academy. “Our new location is very central with several guest houses, restaurants and residential areas close by. It is easily accessible to all students and on main routes, with plenty of public transport available in the area. We look forward to assisting business parks in the area with their training needs and are excited about future developments in the Honeydew area”.


Executive Chef Lecturer Daleen Terblanche describes the new demo kitchen as undoubtedly the demo kitchen with the best view in the whole of Johannesburg, as it overlooks the expansive Eagle Canyon Golf Estate: “Our demo kitchen only takes 20 students which purposely makes it a very intimate environment, ideal for practical learnership. Television cameras are installed to record the demonstrations which are streamed on the TV screens right away, showing a close-up of the process. Recordings are made of these practical sessions and are then available on the E-learning platform afterwards.”


The Academy is not only targeting full-time students, but also part-time learners who want to upskill or even just have fun with a one day course. The 2017 workshops have been released and are available on the Guvon Academy Facebook page. A Moms &Tots workshop is scheduled for 11 March promising a fun day of baking and icing for parents and todlers, without the hassle of cleaning up afterwards. Learn more about Moroccan dishes and experience the tastes and flavours of the colourful county at the 1 April workshop, which is filling up fast
