The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - STAR SPECIAL HIGHER EDUCATION -

IF you are in­ter­ested in a ca­reer in a restau­rant or food ser­vice man­age­ment, a di­ploma from PTPL Col­lege can pro­vide the prepa­ra­tion you need to get started.

Restau­rant chains and food ser­vice com­pa­nies fre­quently re­cruit new man­age­ment trainees from hos­pi­tal­ity man­age­ment pro­grammes at col­leges.

Some­times, wait­resses or chefs with po­ten­tial and proper qual­i­fi­ca­tions are pro­moted to a man­age­ment trainee po­si­tion.

Re­al­is­ing the po­ten­tial, PTPL Col­lege of­fers the Di­ploma in Food Ser­vice & Restau­rant Man­age­ment through its School of Hos­pi­tal­ity & Culi­nary Arts (SCA) for those with a keen in­ter­est in the area of restau­rant or food ser­vice man­age­ment.

Through this course, stu­dents are re­quired to deal with food prepa­ra­tion, nu­tri­tion and san­i­ta­tion. The course also of­fers hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence with in-school kitchen train­ing sup­ple­ment­ing class­room in­struc­tion.

The pro­gramme teaches stu­dents to plan, man­age and mar­ket restaurants, food ser­vices in ho­tels, restau­rant sup­plier com­pa­nies and other hos­pi­tal­ity businesses.

To gain en­try to the di­ploma pro­gramme, stu­dents must ob­tain a min­i­mum of three cred­its in any sub­jects in the SPM/SPMV or a cer­tifi­cate from polytech­nic, pub­lic or pri­vate higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tion ac­cred­ited by Malaysian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Agency (MQA).

The two-and-a-half-year pro­gramme gives stu­dents suf­fi­cient hands-on skills to ex­cel in the in­dus­try.

Stu­dents who are about to com­plete their diplo­mas can move on to a sec­ond year bach­e­lor’s de­gree at the Man­age­ment & Sci­ence Univer­sity (MSU) through its School of Hos­pi­tal­ity & Cre­ative Arts (SHCA).

Apart from this pro­gramme, PTPL also of­fers other pro­grammes through its School of Hos­pi­tal­ity and Culi­nary Arts such as Di­ploma in Culi­nary Arts, Event Man­age­ment, Ho­tel Man­age­ment and Tourism Man­age­ment.
