Course Attended: Chef & Hospitality

I’d been out of the workforce for a long time bringing up children. It was time well spent, but I’d lost confidence and needed to upskill.

I chose the National Certificate in Service Sector at TPP because it has a strong hospitality and tourism focus. I wanted to improve my customer service skills and learn to be a barista.

It was fun being a mature student and the course definitely helped me transition back into work. I now work part-time at Shantytown and I’m also doing a NZ Diploma in Business at TPP. Ultimately, I’d like to be a hotel general manager.
