Course overview

Course overview

Get the technical skills and advanced knowledge required to work in Australia's hospitality industry with this dual qualification. Rising discretionary incomes, busier lifestyles and reduced leisure time are fuelling strong growth in the restaurant industry. The success of popular cooking shows and a developing foodie culture in Australia has also boosted the industry. These trends are expected to support continued growth in the hospitality industry over the next five years.

This course will equip you to work within the kitchen at a supervisory level. You will gain hands-on culinary experience in the preparation of appetisers, salads, stocks, sauces, soups, seafood, meat, poultry, breads, pastries and cakes. Develop your supervisory skills and learn how to manage diversity in the workplace, implement sustainable practices, provide leadership, manage finances, and coordinate cooking operations. You will also get the advanced skills needed to manage a hospitality establishment including rostering, budgeting, marketing, and people management. You will learn customer service skills in our training restaurants, and electives may include how to operate a bar and prepare espresso coffee.

Successful completion of this course will enable you to enter the workforce as a chef or chef de partie, or to work in a management role in a diverse range of hospitality settings.
