Hospitality Management students gain work experience at Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour

Written by Amy Tregidga on July 29th, 2015.      0 comments

During the week of 20th June our National Diploma in Hospitality Management students had the opportunity to see what working is like at the Sofitel Auckland Viaduct Harbour.  They each did two shifts, one morning and one evening at Lava Dining.

Before our students started they received a training session from Roxane, Sofitel's Training Manager.   They learnt about the Sofitel brand and their strict presentation and attitude guidelines all awhile being treated to a magnificent morning tea (including the most delicious french pastries) in their newly opened Wine Cellar.

The following week our students started their work experience. The breakfast shift was an early start for some, 7am, but they got to see first hand what running a breakfast buffet for an 170 room hotel is like.  They were guided by the friendly Food and Beverage team. The evening shift started at 6pm.  Students were able to assist during dinner service and even got to deliver some room service orders.  They met Executive Chef Sebastian Hinrichs who was previously the Head Chef for the French Cafe and creates some of the most amazing dishes.

All in all this has been a fantastic experience for our students and we like to thank the team at Sofitel Viaduct Harbour for the amazing opportunity.

With three distinctions and five merits being awarded, Crown Institute hospitality students achieved an amazing 100% pass rate in the June, 2013 exams! 
“All students worked extremely hard towards their qualifications, both in theory and practice, while still having fun.  They know the value of an international qualification when looking for overseas work.  We are very proud of our students and look forward to training the next intake, who will be working towards the same qualifications." Donna Maclaine - Programme Co-ordinator (Hospitality).
City & Guilds is based in London and was founded in 1878.  Crown Institute currently offers two of their internationally recognised qualifications, the International Diploma in Food and Beverage Service and the International Diploma of Reception Operations and Services.  They are very popular courses for people that are looking to enter the hospitality industry and work here or overseas.
