The industry is facing a huge skills shortage and so trained, skilled staff are highly valued. Our Hospitality course offers experience of a large number of areas including event management, customer service, financial planning, and classic European and contemporary world cuisines.

This is a 100% Coursework assessed qualification. For each unit there are several assignments. These assignments cover the Pass, Merit and Distinction criteria for the unit and at the end of each unit you will be given an overall award.
