Real World Educators

Studying at a college alone won’t teach you all you need to know about the hospitality industry; and you can’t effectively teach about the industry unless you are working in it. With a rapidly-changing marketplace you need to be immersed in every part of it to keep skills fresh and up-to-the minute, which is why our lecturers are employed in senior roles in the hospitality industry – it gives them solid experience and up-to-date, current knowledge. Through our connections with the hospitality, tourism, hotel, events and culinary worlds, our courses have been designed by industry and are taught by industry.
