Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

Students in the Diploma of Hospitality Management are required to do practical work placement within a commercial kitchen.  New Era Institute has a network on workplaces that will take students for their placement. New Era Institute will establish a formal Work Placement Agreement with the nominated workplace.

The work placement is completed in block mode during the course. At stage 4, you work as a cook for 48 complete food service periods covering breakfast, lunch, dinner and special functions.

A work placement logbook is used to record the worked hours and the service periods.

A student who is already working in the hospitality sector and in a commercial kitchen is encouraged to use their existing workplace to complete these practical placement hours providing it meets the requirements of the unit of competency. Our representative will meet with the workplace supervisor and visit sites to confirm these arrangements.

In all cases, New Era Institute will engage with the nominated workplace to ensure that it will provide a suitable environment and the required types of service and cookery to gather practical experience outlined in the units of competency.

New Era Institute also requires a minimum level of supervision for students, a safe working environment and will undertake regular visits to the workplace. Student should note that unless they have established other arrangements with their employer, practical placement is performed as unpaid work.
