Hospitality

Why study BTEC Hospitality?

The Hospitality industry is diverse,  ever evolving and dynamic. One in ten people in the UK work in hospitality (5.2 million). 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.

What will I study?

The course covers six units including two cooking units

  • The Hospitality industry
  • Running a hospitality event
  • Contemporary world cuisine
  • Food service types
  • Principles of Supervising Customer Service
  • European Cuisine assessment

The course is designed to offer a basis of knowledge across the hospitality industry

How will I be assessed?

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.

Future Opportunities & Careers

The hospitality industry will be short of 11,000 chefs  by the end of 2019 , this is just a small amount of the growing number of vacancies for skilled and trained staff within the hospitality industry . The industry is multi layered, multinational and offers every type  and level of  employment opportunity. The course would also be a good basis for anyone wanting to study Hospitality, Food Science, Business or Event Management at University. It would also form a strong basis to a Higher Level Apprenticeship in any of these areas.

Entry requirements

A pass or above at level 2 in Hospitality or Catering  or a 4 or above in GCSE food preparation

Course expenses

It is recommended that you purchase a set of whites, which will be embroidered with your name and a suitable apron. These will cost approximately £25.00
