With an employment base of more than 1.3 million people, the hospitality and associated industries are preparing for an additional 325,000 new jobs across all sectors. The industry employs a large number of young people in part-time as well as full-time positions.

A diverse range of occupations exists across the hospitality industry, such as customer service and sales, commercial cookery and catering, food and beverage service, accommodation service, product development, and marketing and promotion.

Identified as an industry area with significant skills shortages, the hospitality industry has an ongoing commitment to training in not only the technical areas but those also related to customer service and employability (such as problem-solving, communication and teamwork). Employers value multiskilled workers whose skills can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual business.

The Hospitality Curriculum Framework is HSC based on industry-recognised AQF VET qualifications and is designed to enable students to acquire a range of technical, practical, personal and organisational skills valued both within and beyond the workplace. Students will also acquire underpinning knowledge and skills related to work, employment and further training within the hospitality industry. Through the study of this subject, students will gain experiences that can be applied to a range of contexts, including work, study and leisure and that will assist them to make informed career choices.

Courses within the Hospitality Curriculum Framework provide an opportunity for students to gain Certificates I and II and/or Statement of Attainment towards Certificate III as part of their HSC. Apart from being nationally recognised, these AQF VET qualifications articulate into higher-level qualifications in the hospitality industry, including those which underpin traineeship and apprenticeship pathways, which students may pursue post-school
