Australia’s hospitality industry is undergoing a period of rapid growth. A predicted 91,000 new jobs are expected to be created in the next five years, bringing the total workforce to over 970,000 people. Australians have a growing appetite for high quality food and drink, and they love going out. With the number of bars, restaurants and cafes growing all the time, the industry needs strong managers who can lead the way and provide top level service. Melbourne Polytechnic’s Diploma of Hospitality Management provides in-demand hospitality management skills for success in an industry with unlimited potential for career advancement.
Melbourne Polytechnic’s Diploma of Hospitality Management teaches everything you’ll need, from making great coffee to developing leadership skills and managing a business’s budget. You’ll also earn your Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) certificate, readying you for bar work. You can start with a Certificate IV in a specialty area – hospitality, commercial cookery or patisserie for your first 12 months and move straight into the diploma for a further six months. You will be taught by industry-qualified professionals in modern, state-of-the-art facilities including an operational restaurant and fully-equipped training bar. Learn in facilities featured on Masterchef and The Great Australian Bake-Off, work a kitchen alongside master chefs, such as Jarrod di Blasi and Donovan Cooke and put your skills to the test for real events, earning valued experience while you’re still studying
Graduates will have the skills and experience to either enter the industry in a supervisory role, or level-up on existing industry experience with further study. You may find employment at the operational and managerial level and pursue further management career opportunities in the general hospitality industry, including hotels, motels, restaurants, clubs and other hospitality establishments, including resorts, function centres and even cruise ships. This diploma is widely recognised as a perfect leg-up into a dynamic and growing industry.
