Assumption College’s Nigel Engel, Marlhes Restaurant Manager, and his VET Hospitality team are keen to ensure the dining experience they provide is one everyone is able to enjoy.
With dates for 2018 recently released, the team are excited about new opportunities to provide a remarkable culinary experience to all its guests.
The Marlhes will host both buffet and a la carte dining experiences in 2018 and the VET Hospitality team are eager to showcase the beautiful fresh produce and great selection of wines that compliment all the dishes on offer.
A buffet dinner will include a selection of antipasti, seafood and salads with a hot carvery of selected meats, roast vegetables and condiments as well as an international dessert buffet and cheese selection.
On a la carte restaurant nights, there will be a three course selection with an Italian influence.
Nigel Engel is excited about his team in 2018 and how the course continues to benefit so many.
“VCE Vet Hospitality programs drawn from a national training package, offer qualifications which are recognised throughout Australia. These qualifications provide students with the knowledge and skills to prepare them for a diverse range of occupations in the hospitality industry including commercial cookery, catering and food and beverage service,” Mr Engel said.
“At Assumption College we have a state of the art facility to teach students the techniques and professional attitude required to work within the hospitality industry. Assumption is a member of the Hume Cluster group of schools, so we have not only our own students but we also have students from Broadford Secondary College, Wallan Secondary College, Seymour College and Saint Mary’s College who attend each week on a Wednesday.
“VET not only teaches them the required curriculum it also teaches them responsibility, team work, initiative, time management and the skills to work in a fast pace, demanding environment.”
Students at Assumption College complete their first year in front of house learning restaurant procedures, in second year they move into back of house learning kitchen operation procedures. After completion of two years’ students obtain a Certificate II in hospitality and a Certificate II in Kitchen Operations, giving them a greater chance of obtaining work while at school and when they complete their schooling.
