Stage 6 VET - Hospitality Kitchen Operations

Stage 6 VET – Hospitality Kitchen Operations

The role vocational education and training (VET) courses play in helping students prepare for further education, training, employment and lifelong learning is widely recognised by key stakeholders in education.

The hospitality industry is one of the largest in Australia, predominately made up of small to medium businesses that provide a range of accommodation, food and beverage services. The inter-related nature of hospitality means that many businesses operate across sectors within the industry and across complementary industries such as tourism, travel and events.

Hospitality Kitchen Operations allows students to gain both HSC qualifications and accreditation with industry and the workplace as part of the Australian Qualification Framework (AQF). These courses each have a specific workplace component. Students must complete a minimum of 70 hours work placement in a hospitality workplace. 

Students receive special documentation showing the competencies gained.

This course is for students who wish to work in the hospitality industry, either as a long term career or in part time positions whilst studying at university

In the Core of the course students concentrate on developing the skills to work effectively in a hospitality environment including Hospitality Industry awareness, communicating with customers and staff, working safely and hygienically and operating equipment.

The Commercial Cookery strand studied builds on these skills. Students will be able to develop further competencies in:

·         preparing / presenting food;

·         commercial cookery methods;

·         food safety procedures
