Hospitality Study Options Expanding in Wellington

Hospitality Study Options Expanding in Wellington


WelTec’s internationally recognised School of Hospitality is expanding the range of programmes it offers following the success of a new Advanced Diploma in Cookery.


“Last year we offered for the first time a new Diploma in Cookery. The Diploma prepares people to work in commercial kitchens with a view to supervising or running their own. Students learn what it takes to be a Kitchen Supervisor; Sous Chef or Head Chef.

“With this qualification students can pick up a range roles to gain experience, not only in hotels, restaurants and catering companies, but also much more widely in our multifaceted industry,” says Ben Shadbolt Head of Hospitality.

“The Diploma in Cookery has proven to be very popular with thirty more students than we had initially anticipated already enrolled. We are offering another intake in July and indications are that this programme will continue to generate high interest.

“We are also about to launch new bakery qualifications. The baking industry, including bakeries in supermarkets, artisan bakeries, cake shops and cafes, approached WelTec to see if we could meet demand for training. We have developed new qualifications for people wanting to work as bakers and these will be coming on stream later in the year,” says Ben.

“The hospitality industry in Wellington is thriving. There are so many opportunities now to learn and work here. We are also finding with recognition by City & Guilds in 2016 as a Centre of Excellence for Asia Pacific that international students are wanting to study with us. So far this year we have welcomed students from the United Kingdom, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, South Korea and China.”
