Tourism and Hospitality (Drysdale)
No matter where you are in life, or what study or career goals you may have for your future, TasTAFE has a qualification or training program that is right for you!
If you want to work in an environment that gives you the opportunity to meet lots of new people, work flexible hours and gain skills and knowledge that will allow you to work anywhere in the world, the tourism, cookery and hospitality industry may be just what you are looking for!
The beauty of Tasmania’s landscape, our unique wildlife and high quality of food and wine has led to a steady growth of employment opportunities in the local tourism industry.
If you decide to gain a qualification in this area, you’ll be choosing an industry that has a wide range of diverse career paths and job roles for casual, part-time and full-time work in a number of settings including restaurants, hotels and resorts, cafés, tourist ventures and retail environments.
Careers in the tourism, cookery and hospitality industry can include food and beverage service positions, managerial positions in restaurants and hotels, and varied roles with travel agencies, event organisers and tour guiding/tourism operators, or you may like to enter the fitness industry.
When you undertake training in this industry, you can create a ‘portable’ career that offers experiences not only in Australia but overseas. You’ll have the opportunity to meet and work with interesting people, learn valuable and transferable skills, and experience practical training in our training restaurants and cafés.
With unprecedented and widespread skills shortages in cookery and hospitality, now is the time to consider undertaking pre-employment or apprenticeship opportunities within this industry. Your studies at Drysdale will help you gain the skills you need and lead to quality job outcomes and the vibrant and exciting career you’ve always dreamt of!
