Kenvale College now offers a work based qualification (Certificate II in Hospitality, SIT20213) based in and through work at Kenvale College approved hospitality establishments in Sydney and some in New Zealand.

Qualified supervisors with prestige in the field provide the necessary training, so that while each person works, they can acquire the skills and required knowledge and have these recognised by a hospitality provider.

Individuals with this qualification can work in various hospitality settings, such as restaurants, hotels, catering operations, cafes, coffee shops and also learn how to manage their own home.

In this certificate, Kenvale offers training within select hospitality establishments in Sydney. The type of establishments selected includes:

  • small to medium sized residences in Strathfield, Chatswood, Pennant Hills, Killara or Randwick.
  • larger residences such as Creston College and Yarraton, as well as a conference centre in the north-west of Sydney, Kenthurst Study Centre.

The hospitality and home management of these residences is entrusted to household administration staff. Each one of these household administrations aims to create a home environment by providing quality hospitality service.

There are also similar Kenvale College approved establishments in New Zealand.

The Work Based Certificate II in Hospitality gives students the opportunity to work at these establishments, gain life skills and qualification all at the same time – on the job.
