Course overview

This qualification provides a real opportunity for you to gain work-specific skills and knowledge of services within the hospitality industry. It will provide an opportunity to connect your technical learning with real-life work placement, through the work experience element of your course.

There will be other non-qualification activities which you will engage in whilst studying, such as enrichment activities which might include the development of employability skills, teamwork, customer service, safe working practices, and problem-solving techniques, which are very important when thinking about working in this industry.

You will also receive personal tutorials, which will provide opportunities to set meaningful targets for yourself and to carry out self-evaluation and reflection.

This study programme includes a range of units assessed across the kitchen and restaurant side of hospitality which will involve evening sessions within Chef’s Whites restaurant. This is alongside compulsory events that will take place throughout the year on mid-week evenings. For that reason, we recommend that any part-time employment is kept strictly to weekends, as you will be required to come in for all practical sessions.
