Choose the right option for your career

Did you know the Hospitality Industry has been growing steadily over the past many years with the growth attributed to factors such as a growing ‘foodie’ culture, the popularity among many individuals to owning a hospitality business, population growth and an increase in consumer demand.

“I started my first course at Serve It Up near the end of 2021, as I wanted to try out hospitality and see how I liked it.
Admittedly I was very nervous on my way to my first class as I was worried I would not enjoy it and waste people’s time, but when I arrived at class that thought was pretty quickly gone. It is a super fun learning environment and all the teachers are very welcoming and friendly. After the first day, I found myself looking forward to the next classes and learning about coffees, cocktails and restaurant service, and before I knew it the 1-week course was over in a flash because I was having so much fun. I decided to take the offer of moving to the Cert IV Hospitality course and continue my learning journey at Serve it up, and I am glad I did it has been such a fun experience and thanks to this course I was able to get my first Front-of house job at Chin Chin, which I can’t thank them enough for giving me this opportunity and this great experience. So if you are looking to try out hospitality as well, I would recommend Serve it Up, The teachers and staff are wonderful and it has been all in all a great time”.

“I signed up in July 2020 to do a blended Certificate IV in Hospitality. The trainers have my enriched my experience throughout the entire time. The course is very well tailored to the hospitality industry. The classes are engaging and fun with a mix of practical and zoom calls due to Cov-id restrictions. A classroom environment really advanced my skills and my trainers Steph M and Cate were extremely helpful & educated with providing adequate training. I have really enjoyed my time at Serve It Up and I would highly recommend it to my peers and colleagues. Well worth signing up!
