Finalists in the 2016 Salute to Excellence program took part in the skills testing day at TAFE Queensland Brisbane campus on Friday 27 May, showing off their tourism, hospitality and cooking abilities in front of leading industry judges.

This year QTIC received a significant increase in the number of applications received from secondary school students for the 2016 Salute to Excellence Awards, which recognises and celebrates high achievers training in tourism or hospitality throughout Queensland.

QTIC recognises these awards as an opportunity to profile the tourism and hospitality industry and encourage graduating students into the industry which is currently experiencing buoyant growth and diverse opportunities for school leavers seeking pathways for continued learning.
