What's 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 in 2020

In 2020, 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.

If you are looking to:

  • Add more to your hospitality classes
  • Want your students to gain a unit standard
  • Give your students a hands-on experience
  • Arrange a tutor to come out to your school for a session

Please email your interest and we will see how we can accommodate.
