TAFE SA gets mobile with hospitality training

TAFE SA is extending its well-known hospitality training to reach more people across Eyre Peninsula communities.





Last week, TAFE SA launched a 16-week Certificate II in Kitchen Operations (SIT20312) course in Kimba, following the successful completion of the same course in Tumby Bay in June. TAFE SA Regional Manager Richard Horgan said TAFE SA is now calling for expressions of interest to run the course in Cummins.

“As we told people at the Cleve Field Days, we want to spread the opportunities for training across the region to match community needs,” Mr Horgan said.  “Whether it be kitchen operations, work site tickets or a short course in welding, I encourage people to enquire about where and when TAFE SA is organising training. Depending on community demand, it might be closer than you think.”

Applications are still open for the Kimba kitchen operations course, which is held in the Kimba Trade Training Centre every Friday from 9 am to 3.30 pm.

Students gain competencies to work in hospitality as well as the foundations for advanced qualifications, including commercial cookery.
TAFE SA lecturer Janine Kroemer led the Tumby Bay kitchen operations course, which included a series of field trips to well-known businesses in the region, such as Boston Bay Wines and the Lincoln Hotel. The industry sites ensures students saw first-hand what standards were expected from graduates seeking successful careers in hospitality.

“TAFE SA’s mobile training means students can complete an accredited introductory certificate without having to move to the city,” Ms Kroemer said. “The kitchen operations course can be staged in community establishments such as football clubrooms or local churches where adequate, small-scale commercial kitchen facilities are provided - so long as we have enough enrolments.”

Student Alyssa Milligan completed 50 hours of work experience with chef Tony Ford at Boston Bay Wines. She said the course kick-started a passion for cooking. “This course has been a fantastic opportunity for me,” Ms Milligan said. “We cooked some amazing dishes and I have learned so much more. I would love to pursue a career in food and hospitality.”

The Certificate II in Kitchen Operations is funded by the State Government’s WorkReady initiative.

To register for courses in Kimba or Cummins, please contact TAFE SA’s Regional Business Development Officer Megan Cox on 8628 2456 or email Megan Cox
