About Us

Based in Australia’s capital city Canberra, JP International College (JPIC) is a boutique college offering a range of courses in Hospitality, Management, Business and Commercial Cookery.


The hospitality industry is an enormous one and provides a huge range of rewarding positions in restaurants, event planning, theme parks, resorts, cruise lines and casinos.


There are plenty of opportunities for advancement in the diverse and dynamic hospitality industry. If you’re passionate about your future career, are energetic and upbeat, have leadership abilities and enjoy helping others, or want to become a master chef, the global hospitality industry is seriously worth considering.


Our CEO, Johnson Pearce has over 40 years of experience in hospitality in both Europe and Australia. He trained at the prestigious Institute of Tourism and Hotel Management in Austria and then spent the next 10 years in Europe honing his skills both as a Chef and Operations Manager. He then moved to Canberra and opened a highly successful, award winning restaurant which he ran for 25 years. Combining his passion for cooking and love of teaching and sharing his skills with others, he decided to open JP International College in 2007 with the view of empowering students for international careers.


At JPIC, the combination of quality academic teaching, practical training within a personalized and supportive environment is our recipe for success. The individual approach we take with our students gives them the best chance of securing their dream role on graduation! We have graduates working in 5 star restaurants in Canberra whilst others are branching out to open their own restaurants in their home countries, Canberra and further afield in Australia.


We welcome you to join us at JPIC for a unique and career changing experience!
