Your Future

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

HIGH SCHOOL

Still at school and have have a keen interest in food? Choose hospitality and cooking electives during years 10, 11 and 12

Enrol in the VET Certificate II in Kitchen Operations if it is available at your school.

FINISHED SCHOOL

Contact your local TAFE's and Hospitality Train Centres and seek advice on how to enrol

Head out to your local hospitality venues and enquire about work, wash dishes, learn every job there is - this is what will make you a valuable employee

Each job role in a hospitality team plays an important part in ensuring it is successful, meaning the kitchen hand is just as important as the manager

OTHER OPTIONS

Get a part-time job and always be 10 minutes early for a shift, ready to go

Leave your personal items and phone alone and when you've finished a task always ask "What's next"

Ask questions, listen, learn and continue this process always
