This is a multi disciplinary course validated by London Metropolitan University. The course integrates academic and work-based learning and is intended to equip you with the vocational skills, competencies and knowledge relevant to your future career in the hospitality industry.
As well as studying topics such as front of house, rooms divisions and operations, food and beverage operations, marketing, and customer relationship management, you will also learn about other important aspects of the hospitality industry including finance and human resource management.
You’ll be trained on MICROS software and hardware – a property management and computer reservation system used to book guest services and record sales. You’ll learn to use MICROS for both front and back office tasks such as placing food orders from customers and recording menu sales.
Guest speakers from the food, beverage, conference, banqueting, and recruitment fields will share their expertise, and educational visits to various hotels offering a range of guest experiences will also be provided.
