RGIT Australia held a hospitality industry consultation and validation session with industry experts at its Main Campus in Melbourne on Thursday, 9 August 2018.
RGIT Australia's Hospitality Department hosted the session which saw industry experts, Front Office Manager, Nish Polu, and Sous Chef, Chandra Kumar, from Melbourne's prestigious Stamford Plaza Hotel, share ideas on how RGIT Australia can best tailor its hospitality training to meet industry needs. The experts received a comprehensive tour of RGIT Australia's Main Campus, including its Level 1 Training Kitchen, before an interactive question-answer-session with hospitality students and staff.
The question-answer-session enhanced students' understanding of the industry and allowed them to ask questions such as how to balance work, studies and personal life. Following the session, the hospitality buffet gave students the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and expertise to the industry experts and all in attendance at the session.
The main purpose of RGIT Australia's industry consultation and validation session was to ensure that the Institute continues to deliver real-life industry skills to its students through tailored training. The session also allowed industry to advise on trainer assessments used across the wide-range of hospitality courses available at RGIT Australia.
RGIT Australia's Hospitality Department can proudly claim to be using “best practice” as the Stamford Plaza industry experts confirmed the Institute's training delivery after a robust investigation of its learning resources and curriculum.
