Level 3 Hospitality Plus Academy Full Time

ACHOSF
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: N. Hanson

Recommended Prior Learning

At Level 3 it is expected that students have completed the Level 2 academy successfully.


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 NZMA Symonds Street Chef Training School, one day a week and will be trained by their tutors (limited places are available).
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.

In 2022 we are hoping to introduce a Financial Literacy component and /or a Bee Keeping one. These components are either going to be introduced at the Level 2 or the Level 3 course. Details are still being developed but both will also contribute credits to the NCEA.
The Hospitality Plus Academy Full Time Programme offered in 2022 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 participate 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.
