GCCC Introduces Hospitality Courses

Hospitality Practices | Certificate II & III in Hospitality

Gold Coast Christian College (GCCC) is pleased to introduce Hospitality Practices and Certificate II & III in Hospitality this year. These courses will contribute to a student’s ATAR scores.

Hospitality Practices explores the sectors of the Hospitality Industry.

Students develop awareness of industry workplace culture and practices and develop the skills, processes and attitudes required for future employment in this sector. They have opportunities to develop personal attributes that contribute to employability, including the abilities to communicate, connect and work in teams, plan, organise and solve problems.

Students develop knowledge of the Coffee Culture (e.g. cafes, kiosks and mobile beverage operations and skills) to plan events providing food and beverage services. Students will also gain knowledge, understanding and skills in the kitchen production, including a range of food and beverages, including presentation and service skills suitable for a wide range of dining experiences. The delivery of training is set in a realistic operational environment using current industry tools, equipment and other resources.

The Certificate II in Hospitality qualification reflects the role of individuals who have a defined and limited range of hospitality operational skills and basic industry knowledge. They are involved in mainly routine and repetitive tasks and work under direct supervision. This qualification provides pathways for students to work in various hospitality settings, such as restaurants, resorts, catering operations and cafés.

This course will commence in Term 3, with completion by the end of Term 4. Successful completion of this course will enable students to continue on to the Certificate III in Hospitality or enter the workforce at an entry level position.

The Certificate III qualification reflects the role of individuals who have a range of well-developed hospitality service, sales or operational skills and sound knowledge of industry operations. Using discretion and judgement, they work with some independence and under limited supervision using plans, policies and procedures to guide work activities.

Successful completion of this course will enable students to discover the various exciting career pathways in hospitality, food and beverage services, specialising in accommodation services. They will also be well placed to continue on with further studies in this field. 

This course will commence Term 1, 2021 with completion by the end of 2021.

We are very blessed and fortunate to have Secondary and TAFE Hospitality teacher, Mrs Ronda Fieldhouse instruct these courses at GCCC. Her valuable experience and numerous qualifications have enabled the students of GCCC to explore new opportunities and training. Prior to this, she has provided TAFE students with work experience and mentorship at her past business as well as teaching Hospitality to Second- and Third-Year apprentice Chef students in competition work with successful results.
