What is it all about?

This is a great introduction to tertiary study in the hospitality field, providing real insight into a career in this fast-paced and exciting business. Students experience what it's like to be a student on campus and get a taste of the day-to-day running of a restaurant.

Further training opportunities

Other than the previously listed courses and tasters, we may have the capacity to be able to provide schools with support in a more flexible way to suit a particular STAR programme.
