International Women’s Day has been celebrated all around the world for more than a century. On March 8th, every year, people come together to note the feats that have been made by women and further lobby for gender equality and women’s rights.

In the past few years, women from various institutions, including Frontlearn Institute, have made headlines, called for celebrations, and made those in their spheres of influence proud by making meaningful contributions to the education sector.

A few of these women include:

  1. Pasty Mink – Title IX Coauthor and congresswoman

Pasty is no ordinary woman because of the developments she brought to the field of education. Mink desired to go to medical school but could not do so because she was a woman. Then, after finishing law school, she struggled to find a place to work because she was a woman and a mother. She did not give up though. She pivoted her dreams, becoming the first female candidate of color who was elected into a political post in the US Congress. She then coauthored a book named Title IX and advocated for the rights of women, especially in post-modern discrimination. Mink was instrumental in helping put critical policies against discrimination and in funding education programs that support women.

Today, Frontlearn Institute is laying a lot of emphasis on ensuring that women get a fair chance in education. Our programs are gender-sensitive and we pride ourselves on skilling women who have become great professionals in the corporate sector.

  1. Fanny Jackson Coppin – A proponent for African American Education

Fanny was a former enslaved person from the black community. Being a woman, earning a college degree was no easy feat. She dedicated her life to ensuring that African Americans got as many educational opportunities as possible after the civil war in the United States.

Fanny served as the principal for the Institute of Colored Youth based in Philadelphia for 40 years. During her tenure, she eliminated all tuition fees and financed the housing of the students who moved from the suburbs to live in the city.

At Frontlearn Institute, we have endeavored to make education affordable for both genders through scholarships.

  1. Ella Flagg Young

Ella Young was an education reformer who would later go on to become the first female superintendent of the great city of Chicago. She did not manage to go to school until she was 11 years old. She even managed to teach herself reading and writing. She held important roles in education, including teaching, principal teacher, superintendent, teacher trainer, and school board member.

At Frontlearn Institute, we pride ourselves in the fact that we are training women who go into the corporate sector and hold key positions.

  1. Graca Machel

Ms. Machel is known for her advocacy and philanthropy at the Graca Machel Trust. She has been a lifelong companion of children’s rights and girls’ education. Machel went into history as one of the key people who fought against early child marriage that affected mostly women.

Frontlearn Institute is committed to ensuring that women, just like men, receive quality education that will make them recognizable in society.

Your first likely thought is that culinary arts is a preserve of chefs in restaurants. However, this is only part of culinary arts and there is so much more than simply cooking in a restaurant or a big hotel. At Frontlearn Institute, we would want you to experience the full benefits of this course and today we unravel the details behind what culinary arts is all about.

Definition

Deciphering the term, culinary relates to cooking while arts means any broad area that might be of interest. Therefore, culinary arts means the art of cooking, preparing, serving and presenting food. This may be in the form of food in a restaurant, but culinary arts can be used in other professions that comprise cooking and presenting food.

One simple method of understanding culinary art is to consider what makes cooked food appetizing in the first place. As indivdiduals, we often judge cooked food by how it looks, smells, or tastes. Every time food is presented, sense are active and cause us to develop a certain perception towards the food, regardless of whether or not we know how it was prepared.

This is why professionals in the field of culinary arts take their time to ensure that the food that they cook is appealing and attractive. The success of anyone who is in this profession depends on whether they are able to utilize the tools that are availed to them and create a dish that is perfect in all ways.

The process
The process starts with an idea (idea preparation), which is then incubated (idea incubation), and then developed (idea development), and finally verified (verification). A creative culinary process may comprise of these four or more phases; each of the phase bears an impact on the other and a positive or direct impact on the cumulative culinary process. It has been said before that there is no field that comes close to culinary arts when it comes to creativity and innovation. At Frontlearn Institute, where culinary arts is taught at both certificate and diploma levels, our process starts with creativity and ends with great innovation and there is a great connection between the intermediate steps so much so that our cuisines are a masterpiece.

Frontlearn Institute trains cooks a variety of cooking ways so that they can be able to recall their knowledge and apply their skills to prepare any dish correctly and deliciously. Frontlearn Institute trainers are well versed with the various cooking methods that include frying, boiling, deep frying, sauteing, baking, basting, steaming, broiling, and so much more. In addition to that, Frontlearn’s faculty are familiar with every necessary tool for creating different cuisines. We train our students on the endless array of kitchen tools, and insist that our students must learn to use all of then, including grinders, food mills, pestles, mortar, steamers, ladles, and much more. Frontlearn Institute also labors to ensure that our students learn how to operate different appliances such as electric ovens, gas ranges, convection ovens, and freezers.

    A full-stack developer is a software engineer who can do both front-end and back-end development and handle all that is required as far as servers, databases, clients, and systems engineering is concerned. No one can deny, it is a bit overwhelming and arduous, but doable so long as one gets a good footing and that is what Frontlearn Institute endeavors to do to its students.

    In our training at Frontlearn Institute, we equip students doing both certificate and diploma in information technology with the skills that they need to be proficient in the long list of languages that full-stack developers require: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, MySQL, PHP, Python, and more. We desire to make our students versatile jack of all trades in a market that calls for comprehensive and astute programmers.

    Take a leap and join our pool of programming students at Frontlearn Institute and learn how and what it takes to become a full-stack web and app developer. It is not as difficult and time-consuming as it is depicted or as you may think. We have developed some five simple steps that, when followed keenly, will move you from a doubting Thomas to a full stack developer:

    1. Identify exactly what you need to learn

    At Frontlearn Institute, we will start you off with HTML, CSS, JS, SQL, and PHP but we encourage our students to venture into the deep blue and learn even more. As such, our students have the liberty and resources to learn and be proficient in other languages such as Python, C#, JAVA, Perl, Kotlin, and more. This is because a lot of business processes are written in them. We also encourage our students to master the grammar of the various languages and the structure as well as design to help them with the implementation and testing of projects based on different languages.

    2. Determine the ideal timeline that you need to be an expert

    Our certificate program at Frontlearn Institute takes 2 years while the diploma program takes 3 years. This does not mean that that is precisely what it will take for one to be an expert or rather a full stack developer. It may take longer or shorter, depending on the path they have chosen to tread. It is easier for our students to focus on programming while they are in school and become proficient programmers before they get to the job market than it is for those who are already in careers and have to juggle between a couple of things.

    3. Start learning in a format and from a place that suits you

    Frontlearn Institute is equipped with modern-day computer labs to help one become a full-stack developer. We endeavor to provide a physical and psychological environment that will ensure our students ace and become skillful programmers. Besides, our trainers are fully accessible for consultation and are keen when it comes to programming projects as that is where the rubber meets the road and proper supervision means that the student becomes sharper in the selected language for the project. Students are encouraged to exercise honesty when carrying out programming projects and to desist from urges to copy and paste from other projects available on the web.

    4. Start building your portfolio

    Frontlearn Institute endeavors to place our students in the right place in the market. We are developing a forum that will allow employers to preview our students’ work and their skills. This will encourage our students as we take care of their visibility and marketability.

    5. Start presenting yourself as a full stack developer

    Frontlearn Institute encourages students to display their work by describing the technologies they have employed and their role in the project. We encourage them to demonstrate their work with excellent technical know-how and an eye for design. Our faculty introduces and encourages them to make use of code versioning platforms such as GitHub. Any full-stack programmer should not be afraid to include projects that they are currently working on in GitHub. Building a public portfolio is perhaps one of the best ways they can use to learn how to become full-stack developers.
