About Hospitality

What is hospitality?

The hospitality industry includes restaurants, hotels, cafes, both front of house and back of housework, and pretty much all food services, tourism, and even community services. One of the best things about hospitality is that you can start getting work experience without having to complete traineeships or work placement. However, if you’re looking to have a lifelong career, then further study is a good idea.

Why should I study hospitality?

To get above a lower leadership position in the hospitality industry, studying one of many courses is a brilliant idea. Some of the experiences you can only get through a course include:

  • Working in training restaurants 
  • Getting to explore other areas of experience than what you’re already experienced in
  • Finding out about the operational differences between small business and large business
  • How to start your own hospitality business.
  • Discovering hospitality management tools that you won’t get just from working in the hospitality industry
  • Make valuable connections with Registered Training Organisations (RTO) industry partners
  • Complete required training, like your responsible service of alcohol (RSA)

Plus, completing a course shows potential employers that you’re serious about your career in hospitality. 

Where and what can I study?

You can study anywhere in New Zealand, with most courses being recognised internationally. That includes Auckland or Christchurch. International students can also apply, although it’s always a good idea to check with CRICOS first. 

Possible short courses include:

  • Certificate IV in Hospitality (SIT40416)
  • Certificate III in Hospitality (SIT30616)
  • Certificate II in Hospitality (SIT20316)
  • Diploma of Hospitality Management (SIT50416)
  • Advanced Diploma of Hospitality (SIT60316)
  • Certificate III in Commercial Cookery

Many courses can be studied either full time or part-time, and make sure not to skip the organisations open day to get a course guide and more course details

If you’re interested in looking after people but aren’t interested in health, then hospitality can be a fantastic option for you. Hospitality courses can get you ahead of your competition and show employers that you’re serious about your career!
