Qualification leads to further training and apprenticeships in Certificate III in Hospitality: Commercial Cookery; Pattisserie; Asian Cookery; or Catering Operations.

Cooks and Chefs are a critical skill shortage in Western Australia so apprenticeship and job opportunities are excellent in this diverse profession.

slide19

Hospitality School-based Traineeships

FutureNowhas recently submitted a proposal to the State Training Board regarding a variation to the Nominal Term of School-based Traineeships linked to a Certificate II in Hospitality or Certificate II in Hospitality (Kitchen Operations).

The variation proposed is a change from 14 months (part time) to 18 months (part time) to allow students more time to complete the qualification and increase industry access to trainees/employees in this skill shortage area. Results of this proposal due @ mid April 2011.
