Teacher in Charge:Recommended Prior Learning
This course has no prerequisites; open entry for all.
This course is for students who are passionate about working in the Hospitality Industry.
What is taught in courses varies from year to year. This course could include:
Training will be for eight hours per week on-site. Catering for our community is a requirement in this course.
Students will be expected to work front of house for cafés and a small number of evening events during the course of the year. Students can train in barista, waitering, and learn how to operate a till and EFTPOS terminal.
Students will also be encouraged to compete in the ARA Food and Beverage competitions in June.
Industry visits may include the National Food Show and the Bidvest Trade Show.
Please note that courses will go ahead only if student numbers, staffing, and timetabling allow it. Where a subject is oversubscribed, and there are insufficient numbers or resources to create an extra class, a ballot system may be applied.
The Board of Trustees has again asked to opt into the Ministry of Education donation scheme. Doing so resulted in the ability to waive student fee donations. Kaiapoi High School aims to deliver quality educational courses over and above those that which is funded by the Ministry. It is likely the School will opt into the donation scheme for 2023, however parental contribution for the costs of trips and activities where participation is optional, and/or components not covered by the Government grant, may be requested. We appreciate the financial support our families make to the School.
