Level 2 Hospitality Academy - 1 period a day

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Nyla Hanson

This Academy creates real opportunities for enthusiastic students in Hospitality to achieve industry based skills in our commercial kitchens with a dedicated pathway into employment or further education. Students with satisfactory attendance and work ethic at Level 3 will also attend Auckland Hotel and Chef Training School, one day a week and will be trained by their tutors (limited places are available).
In the first year, (Level 2), there are two options. Both options run each day, one being one hour a day and the other a two hour a day option. In the second year, (Level 3), there are also two options. One is two hours a day each day and the other is full-time Hospitality.
Students will also spend time in the school café working towards credits in both cookery, food and beverage, and customer service. Chef jacket, pants, cap and apron are required for all options; full-time students need two full uniforms.
In this academy students will gain knowledge, practical skills, develop confidence, passion and dedication for a career in the hospitality industry. As part of the second year course structure they will experience a selection of real work placements. The Hospitality Academy Programme offered in 2019 may include hours outside of normal school hours to make it possible for students to complete some of the units under realistic conditions. Students will also be encouraged to enter Culinary Competitions and partake in community service when appropriate
The Hospitality Academy Programme offered in 2019 will include timetabled hours outside of normal school hours. This makes it possible for students to complete some of the units under realistic conditions. Students are encouraged to enter Culinary Competitions and partake in community service. Students will be required to assist in catering tasks that occur both during and after “normal school hours”.
All the standards contribute credits to the NCEA. Some English standards may be offered in a Hospitality context to allow students to develop their work place literacy skills.

All students will need to: complete the MHS online selection process or see Mr Hackett or Mr Tinling, plus complete an AWVA application form and have an interview with the academy tutor. Students will then be notified about whether they have been selected or not.

Places are limited in the academies and are not guaranteed until the application has been confirmed after the above.
Further information is available in the specific academy handbook.
