Queensland Hotel & Hospitality School graduates fast-tracked into jobs




A partnership between TAFE Queensland and The Star Entertainment Group, the school was launched in 2015 to train the state’s next generation of five and six-star hospitality workers.

The school is helping build a pipeline of future tourism workers ahead of the Queen’s Wharf Brisbane project that will require 8000 operational roles, amidst a shortage of hospitality workers in Queensland. Of the graduates employed, nearly 30 per cent are now employed by The Star Entertainment Group, while the remaining 70 per cent have been employed by the wider industry.

As one of the first 14 students who graduated from the school last year, 20-year-old Richard Tidswell today works as a food and beverage attendant at The Star Entertainment Group’s Treasury Brisbane property.

“The past year working for Treasury Brisbane has been great for my career – I’ve grown more confident in my barista and bartending skills, but also in being able to interact and develop relationships with customers,” Tidswell said.

TAFE Queensland CEO Jodi Schmidt said the school was leading the charge to prepare Queensland’s workforce for the thousands of new jobs expected in the coming years, including the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

“The results after the first 12 months are fantastic and demonstrate how our school can give students an edge, especially through the work experience they receive with leading industry employers like The Star Entertainment Group,” Schmidt said.

Queensland Hotel & Hospitality School currently offers three different types of programs: International Hospitality Service Program, culinary arts apprenticeships or front-of-house apprenticeships.

The Star Entertainment Group managing director and CEO Matt Bekier said the one-year anniversary is an important milestone ahead of significant tourism infrastructure projects in South East Queensland, including its Jupiters Gold Coast and Queen’s Wharf Brisbane developments.

“We’re delighted with the great outcomes the school is achieving, and how the employment gained by graduates in the wider industry shows the value these courses are bringing,” Bekier said.

“We look forward to achieving even bigger numbers in the years to come as our company, and industry, continues to grow and transform.”
