• Hospitality


Sunraysia is one of the largest food producing regions in Australia, and also a major tourist destination for national and international visitors, making it a great place to pursue a career in food, wine and hospitality.

SuniTAFE's courses are specifically designed to give students the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in the region's expanding food and hospitality industry.


Designed to meet the needs of a growth industry, SuniTAFE offers students practical, hands-on training. Our hospitality students practice and perfect their skills in the SuniTASTE training restaurant, which is open to the public. SuniTAFE's hospitality teachers are recognised as experts in their field and enjoy strong links with local businesses. Our apprentices also have the opportunity to participate in local events, including the Chefs of the Future cooking competition.


A pathway to work in organisations such as restaurants, hotels, clubs, pubs, cafes and coffee shops, or to run a small business in these sectors.
