Angliss International Hotel School offers pathway to success
Sixty-six students commenced the Diploma of Hospitality at the new Angliss International Hotel School which has exceeded expectations for the first year.
This 12 month program offers a Diploma of Hospitality and focusses on developing students’ skills in hotel management. A key feature of the Diploma is an industry placement with a premier hotel partner, giving students valuable hands-on experience and a competitive edge when seeking employment opportunities.
The course features an exclusive Masterclass series in the provision of luxury services delivered by industry experts. For example, Front Office Manager Sevag Keroghlian from Pullman Melbourne on the Park conducted a hotel professional and interview profile masterclass.
Mr Keroghlian gave insights into the qualities of outstanding front office and general hotel associates with extraordinary and motivating stories of his own experiences. He also helped students start to understand the characteristics they each inherently have and how to polish them to their advantage.
AIHS students enjoyed their recent experience at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival’s World’s Longest Lunch, serving front of house to guests seated on pit lane at Albert Park.
The students attended a site visit to the Westin Hotel and met with the General Manager Debra Watts, and Human Resources Manager Erem Aziz, who shared their experiences working in the hotel industry.
After completing the Diploma, students will qualify for guaranteed entry into the second year of any William Angliss Institute Bachelor Degree programs, including the Bachelor of Tourism and Hospitality Management and the new Bachelor of Resort and Hotel Management.
William Angliss Institute Manager – Centre for Tourism and Hospitality Cary Warren said that, as a specialist training provider the Institute is in a unique position to offer innovative programs which allow students to quickly build careers in hotel management.
“This specialised training will equip students to be ready and highly skilled to take up entry level positions in large international hotels or boutique hotel chains and work their way up to supervisor and management positions,” Mr Warren said.
