The Fellowship will aim to enhance the quality of training provided to hospitality professionals in the Victorian Technical and Further Education (TAFE) sector. It will do so by identifying competency gaps among recently graduated TAFE chefs as perceived by employers and experienced chefs and recommending changes to the relevant courses in the TAFE syllabus. Over 2408 chefs have migrated to Australia since 2015. Some of this demand may be attributed to the local chefs lacking requisite skills. The refreshed competency-driven curriculum informed by industry inputs will lead to superior employment outcomes for the TAFE graduates.
“I am so excited and grateful to be a Higher Education and Skills Group Fellowship recipient. I accept this fellowship with extreme honour. This fellowship will provide me an improved understanding and capabilities processed by the hospitality students in the Victorian TAFE system and the competencies and capabilities that the industry currently needs.”
