More on the menu in TAFE SA hospitality and cookery courses

TAFE SA’s hospitality and cookery training has a long history of serving up successful chefs, restaurant managers, sommeliers, head waiters and expert service staff across Australia and internationally.

But TAFE SA’s high-level Diploma and Advanced Diploma hospitality and cookery courses lead to careers outside the nation’s kitchens and wine bars.

The business management, marketing, finance and human resource components of the programs can also lead to successful job outcomes in management, marketing and product development, and small business.

TAFE SA business hospitality and management graduate Mark Reginato would attest to this. As the owner of Adelaide companies Connect Vines and Man of Spirit, the long-time TAFE SA graduate is working with small independent producers in Australia and overseas to bring a range of unique small-batch wines and spirits to customers looking for rare and boutique product experiences.

Mr Reginato started with TAFE SA studying Business Hospitality and Management, finishing in 2001. He said he always wanted to use his training to work in product development, marketing and distribution – and to find success in a niche market.

Now his companies assist producers with business support, marketing and distribution of products as well as staff training.

Mr Reginato said he still uses his TAFE SA connections today to seek advice and industry knowledge.

“Having lecturers with local industry links and on-the-job experience was definitely the best part of my training and to be able to call upon that knowledge, even today, is extremely helpful,” he said.

“A lot of people I work with today are TAFE SA graduates. TAFE SA really opened the door to the food and wine industry and to people who, like me, have a love for high-quality, unique tastes and a passion for their products.”

Former graduate Belinda McPherson is TAFE SA’s Hospitality Educational Manager and has more than 13 years’ experience working with lecturers and industry experts to develop or adapt training courses to match emerging trends and needs.

TAFE SA is about getting students job-ready but there is definitely more to our hands-on courses than the traditional career outcomes in hospitality and cookery,” Ms McPherson said.

“We offer a range of business, finance, management and marketing training to give people the skills to branch into other areas of the industry. Mark is a great example of someone who has applied his training to do what he loves and TAFE SA will continue to support his endeavours.”
