Build Your Employability: Gain Work Experience While You Study at Crown

Written by Amy Tregidga on February 27th, 2014.      0 comments

At Crown we understand the importance of our students gaining valuable work experience. Real skills and experience give you employability and are essential for even an entry-level role in the hospitality industry!
 
Graduates from Crown who have had some work experience are more successful in finding jobs in their chosen industry, as they have been exposed to the working world while studying.
 
Three of Crown's Travel, Tourism & Airline Studies Certificate students had the great opportunity to help the lovely people at Discover America at their event at SkyCity last week. Their main role at the event was to meet and greet travel agents and direct them to their seats. Eunice Heywood Almario, Venus Hertz Alviola and Reece Main only started their course at Crown on 3 February 2014 and have been able to network with industry people already!
 
The recent NRL Auckland Nines competition was another opportunity for Crown students to gain valuable paid work experience with Function Staff. Students worked in various roles at Eden Park from Corporate Box Hosts to Duty Managers.  In fact seven of Crown’s current students and recent graduates were Duty Managers at the event!
 
This weekend, approximately ten students will be working at Mt Smart Stadium for the Bruce Springsteen concert!
 
If you would like more information about studying at Crown, call us today on 0800 357 316, email info@crown.ac.nz or click HERE to complete an enrolment form.
 
The next intake for the National Diploma in Hospitality Management and New Zealand Diploma in Business is 10 March 2014.
 
The Crown Certificate in International Travel, Tourism & Airline Studies, Crown Certificate in International Hospitality – Food & Beverage Service and Crown Certificate in International Hospitality – Hotel Services & Reception Operations starts 24 March 2014.

Crown students achieve a 100% pass rate in City & Guilds exams

Written by Amy Tregidga on July 26th, 2013.      0 comments

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.
 
The International Diploma in Food and Beverage Service includes fourteen core units that cover personal skills, customer care, food and drinks service, including silver service.
 
The International Diploma of Reception Operations and Services incorporates ten core units, covering all important aspects of hotel reception work.
 
If you are looking for more than just a qualification, give us a call to talk about our exciting programmes.

Gain international qualifications that will take you to five star restaurants and five star resorts!

We have recently received some great news that we just have to share with you! Our Crown Certificate in International Hospitality (Hotel and Reception Operations) has just had a makeover and it’s really exciting!

This programme will teach you everything you need to know about working in a hotel, and you’ll learn about food and beverage service in functions and restaurants and also gain travel and tourism skills. What a package!

You will gain national certificates in all three skill areas. The job opportunities are many and varied: Hotel receptionist, Maître d’, bar tender, porter, concierge, event coordinator, café manager….

This is a fantastic course for anyone who is interested in both hospitality (hotel and food and beverage service) and travel and tourism. It will give you the qualifications to work in both industries!

Crown is the only institution in Auckland running this course in 2013. So, if you’re interested in studying this excellent course in 2013, then click here and we will send you some more information about how you can apply.

Here’s what a couple of our recent graduates said about this year’s programme:

“Thanks to Crown Institute, I have scored myself a job at Air New Zealand. I highly recommend that you study at this school. It has amazing staff, you meet amazing people, and most of all you get something out of it. My thanks to all the wonderful people who made it happen. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t have got an awesome job in travel, which I love! Sign up today!”

“If I didn’t go to Crown I wouldn’t have my great job at the SkyCity Hotel. Crown’s people have made me into the person that I am today and they helped me start my career in this industry! Many thanks to the excellent Crown staff.”
