Six-star hospitality school to open



 TAFE Queensland and Echo Entertainment Group have finalised a partnership that will see the creation of the new Queensland Hotel and Hospitality School.

The school promises that Queensland's next generation of chefs and hospitality workers will soon be "six-star trained".

TAFE Queensland CEO Jodi Schmidt said the partnership will provide real-world experience and better prepare students for a career in hospitality.

"This is about jobs for Queenslanders and taking our training in this important industry up a notch to compete with the best in the world," Schmidt said.

"This is a very important sector to Queensland's economy. The tourism industry generates 241,000 jobs and delivers $23 billion in Gross State Product for the state."

Ms Schmidt added that the Queensland Hotel and Hospitality School will ensure students are ready to work in five and six star hotels and the region's finest restaurants, lifting the quality of the entire industry in South East Queensland and, importantly, raise the bar of service culture ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

The first training agreement, signed today by TAFE Queensland CEO Jodi Schmidt and Echo Entertainment Group CEO Matt Bekier, sees the new school providing three new opportunities:

     6 Star International Hospitality Service Programs (15 students each, with a program on the Gold Coast and in Brisbane starting 24 August 2015): a bespoke program to deliver industry-ready frontline graduates with the service skills required for luxury 6 star properties. The program will be delivered as an intensive three month program, both on campus and on site with leading hospitality partners, and will incorporate an accredited Certificate III in Hospitality.
    Culinary Arts Apprenticeships (15 students starting September 2015): This apprenticeship model will deliver a high level commercial cookery apprenticeship up to a certificate IV level, to help deliver future culinary stars to provide the finest in contemporary cuisine to the highest of international standards.
    Front of House Apprenticeships (4 apprentices starting July 2015): Echo Entertainment is supporting this industry-led initiative designed to create exemplary food and beverage specialists with a recognised trade qualification for this profession within the hospitality industry.

Bekier said: "We're proud to support these new offerings which will further encourage students to pursue tailored education and training to underpin a profession in the tourism industry."

"Queensland has world-class beaches, a world-class reef and world-class scenery. We need to ensure our people in the hospitality industry are world-class as well.

"It's management's responsibility to ensure staff have the training and development they need. We want the best trained staff in the best run facilities that are as good as any in the world."
