Students get immersed at the QCWT

Last week 10 students from Year 12 participated in the Young Host – Bar immersion program at the Queensland College of Wine Tourism. During the 4 day program they not only completed 2 units of competency towards their Certificate III in Hospitality, but they also learnt all the facets of bar work. This included pouring beers, serving wine correctly and preparing mocktails. Their skills were tested when they had to serve food and beverages at a high tea on Thursday afternoon to both staff and parents. They also served beverages to the visiting Shiwa Japanese students and assisted with serving and clearing their meals. The beauty of this program is the real life experience it offers – working behind a real bar and serving real customers. Last year the students completed a Young Host and Young Chef course and this program follows on, further developing their industry skills and knowledge.
