Hospitality is a flourishing subject at Lynfield College. The course covers all three years of NCEA with the opportunity for students to develop confidence in all areas of Hospitality.
Learning Outcomes in Hospitality

Students will learn, develop and demonstrate the following skills:
At Level 1, students gain workplace safety skills and a wide range of practical cookery skill and knowledge. This is complemented by credits to help gain their NCEA Level 1. Students who complete the year gain a ServiceIQ Foundation Hospitality Certificate. This is a great addition to a burgeoning C.V.

 In Level 2 students are required to work at a higher level, with greater accuracy and complete more refined dishes. The credits they gain contribute to NCEA Level 2. Students who successfully complete the course will gain a ServiceIQ Cookery Certificate and a Front of House service certificate. These help greatly when students are applying for part or full time employment.
At Level 3 we offer two courses – Barista and Catering. Both provide credits which contribute to the  NCEA Level 3 Certificate.

 The Barista course focuses on the knowledge and skill required to work in and to run a café. Students gain this experience by opening D’café to staff and students during the morning, interval and lunch. Students who successfully complete the course gain a Level 3 ServiceIQ Barista certificate. This is a great aid in finding café and restaurant roles for full or part time employment.

The Catering course is focused on cookery skills. Through strong links to the industry, students develop the ability to plan and cater for functions while earning valuable Level 3 credits. Students are encouraged to enter competitions and are assisted into employment, apprenticeships, industry providers or culinary arts degrees.
