Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Ms L. Rainbow

Students will complete a range of level 3 standards in Hospitality that will provide a pathway to tertiary study in the hospitality sector or the skills to gain entry level jobs in the food industry. This course offers both practical and theoretical application of knowledge and skills required in the hospitality industry. Level 3 Hospitality recognises the competence, knowledge and skills required to successfully prepare and present food and beverage in a commercial kitchen. Students will demonstrate their ability to comply with health and safety legislation. As part of this course students will complete Barista training at level 3 and run a cafe during the school day. These are excellent to have for entry level into the hospitality industry or looking at part-time employment. The course is creative and interesting, and allows students to learn useful skills that are in high demand in the workforce.
