The aim of this programme is to enable the learner to develop knowledge, skills and competence in the art of hospitality, and to work independently under supervision in a range of key areas in a hospitality enterprise.
This full time programme is designed to provide learners with the necessary skills and techniques including Accommodation Techniques, Reception Skills, Food & Beverage Service and Restaurant Skills.
This Traineeship is 42 weeks in duration, beginning in an education and training environment, with work placement following either during or after the in-class learning. The traineeship includes a substantial period of time (generally 30% minimum/10 weeks) in the workplace, e.g., 3 days per week in work placement/2 days per week in class OR block work placement. Development of a traineeship programme is triggered by identification of a skills need within a particular industry. The work-based component is supported by an in-company mentor/supervisor who oversees completion of each trainee’s skills checklist on-the-job.
