Full-time, one year
From 24 Aug 2020
If you’ve got a real desire for a management role in the fast moving, dynamic hospitality industry, then this course could set you up for a fantastic career.
For entry to this course, you’ll need to have:
- an HNC Hospitality
- a successful interview with us
It’s also really valuable if you can gain experience of working in the industry while you’re on this course.
A key part of this course is management of food and beverage operations, so you’ll take part in live events. Working in a team, you’ll plan, organise, deliver and evaluate an event. You’ll come up with the idea or theme - e.g. a Burns Supper, Chinese New Year Celebration, Valentine’s Dinner or a charity event - and then get to work! From big tasks to tiny details, you’ll do the lot - publicity, licence application, menus, food order, table decorations and more.
Other skills you’ll learn (and practice when you’re planning for and reporting on your event) include:
- Team management
- Business finance & management
- Accommodation management
- Developing & delivering staff training
You’ll also have the chance to:
- Participate in real functions such as business events or bespoke dinners.
- Visit distilleries or hotels such as Trump Turnberry, Lochgreen House in Troon or the Hilton Glasgow.
- Join in Masterclasses from local industry professionals.
- Hear top tips on how to get ahead in hospitality from leading employers, successful venue owners and industry suppliers.
- Take part in competitions such as inter-campus competitions or the national Student Team Challenge.
