QLD Hotel & Hospitality School

The Queensland Hotel and Hospitality School is a new school developed as a partnership between TAFE Queensland and the Star Entertainment Group.  The school offers courses in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast based at TAFE campuses and off-site.

Additionally, industry engagement was sought from the premium hotel sector to assist with analysis of recruitment needs, the development and contextualisation of course content, master classes and work experience placements.  Employment opportunities can be extended to suitable students at the end of each course.  Current industry partners are:
In Brisbane:-
Treasury Casino & Hotel
Sofitel Brisbane Central
Hilton Brisbane
Hotel Jen Brisbane
NEXT Hotels Brisbane
Royal International Convention Centre
Rydges South Bank
Pullman & Mercure Brisbane King George Square
In Gold Coast:-
Jupiters Hotel & Casino
Intercontinental Sanctuary Cove Resort
Palazzo Versace
Sea World Resort & Waterpark

Limited opportunities remain for additional industry partners to join the school.

Courses

The initial programmes of the Queensland Hotel and Hospitality School commenced in 2015.  These are:
*  The International Hospitality Service Programme (incorporating the Certificate III in Hospitality)
*  Culinary Arts Apprenticeship (Certificate III in Commercial Cookery) based on the successful Echo Culinary Institute model

The International Hospitality Service Programme is based on the Certificate III in Hospitality and designed to train and provide industry with entry level food and beverage staff with strong five and six star hotel skills.  A core team from industry assisted with contextualising the course material to five and six star standard.  The training modules for the programme were selected by TAFE Queensland and the Star Entertainment Group with industry feedback sought.  Specific modules chosen include:
- Provide silver service
- Provide advice on food and beverage matching
- Provide advice on imported wines, Australian wines, beers, spirits and liqueurs

Students were provided with work experience in two different industry partners with three shifts a week over four weeks in each property.  Feedback on the students and course has been extremely positive with most students from the first cohort achieving employment within a month of completion.  The second cohort of students commenced in Brisbane on 1 February 2016.

The Culinary Arts Apprenticeship has been based on the Echo Culinary Institute model where block releases are front loaded in the apprenticeship (more blocks held in the first year than held in the second and third years).  14 students commenced in December 2016.  The goal of this programme is to rotate apprentices through multiple outlets and properties to provide an extremely well rounded experience.

Additional course offerings will be developed over the next few years with the goal being a Bachelor programme.  Trends and industry needs will be monitored with assistance from our partners.
