Kenvale College is a not-for-profit college that has been committed to meeting the needs of the hospitality, events and kitchen management industry since 1971.

We offer courses in hospitality, kitchen management and event management with a holistic approach to education. They can be taken either full-time or part-time and are a progressive pathway towards university degrees both in Australia and overseas.


“Thank you for inviting us — we really did appreciate it. I must say I was really impressed by the Briar Ridge team — one of them (Aiden) did a really great job explaining who they were, what they were about etc., and really took the time to give us the background on the person behind it all (Gwyn Olsen). He’d clearly immersed himself in the project, and I think she’d have been really pleased if she’d seen that. Happy to reach out and tell her so if you think it would help pave the way for future events.”

“I just wanted to express thanks and congratulations to all at Kenvale for the magnificent lunch provided on Thursday. I have been to many hatted restaurants this year and can honestly say that they would have struggled to produce such fantastic dishes. The lunch was a credit to your students and your staff.  It would be a privilege to enjoy another visit next year. Best wishes to your graduating students for success in their career and to your staff to continue to guide students to reach such a high standard.”

“It was great to finally come and see the college. It is a great facility and I can see why your students do well here. I have (and will continue to) recommend the Kenvale students as employees to our other local hotels. Your students have a great energy and work ethic and it brings the whole team alive.”
