“It has been amaz­ing to see the stu­dents not only de­velop their knowl­edge and skills but also im­prove their con­fi­dence.

“We have re­ceived fan­tas­tic back­ing from lo­cal em­ploy­ers and we re­ally ap­pre­ci­ate the time that they have given to en­cour­age and sup­port our stu­dents to con­sider a ca­reer in the hos­pi­tal­ity sec­tor - their as­sis­tance is re­ally cru­cial to the suc­cess of the course.”
