Students attending AIS reflect the international and multicultural
needs of today’s Hospitality industry.
outher n Institute of Technology (SIT) prides itself on
producing exceptional chefs, cooks and culinar y artists. The
Institute’s Cookery programmes are offered at the Invercargill
and Queenstown campuses, beginning with the New Zealand
Certificate in Cooker y (Level 3), (Level 4) and for those who wish to
study at a more advanced level the Invercargill campus offers the New
Zealand Diploma in Cooker y (Advanced) with strands in Cooker y.
One of SIT’s graduate success stor ies comes in the for m of Ella
Ritson-Jones. Having studied Cookery at Level 3, Level 4 and then
undertaken Diploma level study, she now works at prestigious and
luxur ious Blanket Bay, a luxury lodge in Glenorchy, Central Otago.
Guest speaking at SIT’s Certificate Graduation Ceremony in August,
she encouraged students to make the most of opportunities offered,
something she has done all the way through her career.
In 2016, Ella was offered the opportunity to represent SIT and
compete in a MasterChef competition in Vietnam. The prestigious
inter national competition featured three teams, each made up of two
New Zealand students and two Vietnamese culinary students. The teams
were to deliver a fusion of the finest produce and techniques from each
country to over 150 guests. Ella’s fusion take on the Kiwi pavlova with
spun sugar, strawberry sorbet, lemongrass syrup and fresh fruit, proved to
be a crowd favour ite and her team won the ‘guest vote’ competition.
Future hospitality students at SIT look forward to utilising well-
equipped classrooms and training kitchens, with the Queenstown campus
having a brand new Cookery suite, which opened at the beginning of
the year. Invercargill campus also operates the Vault Café and Bungalow
Restaurant which are open to the public at certain times of the year so
students can get real-life industry experience as part of their training.
If the focus is on customer service within the hospitality industry,
the Invercargill based New Zealand Certificate in Food and Beverage
Service can deliver the core skills required for anyone wanting to
begin their career, or secure seasonal employment deliver ing hospitality
services, products and exper iences to customers. n
ommitment, focus, multiculturalism: Why hiring inter national
students is just good business.
Your customers are changing. So why aren’t your staff?
Today Kiwi hospitality businesses are cater ing to an ever-
changing ar ray of people, and hiring international students who reflect
those people is just good business sense claims Auckland Institute of
Studies. Hiring inter national students brings far more benefits than
just acting as a mirror to customers. Many have worked in multiple
countries and speak multiple languages – ar ming them with the tools
they need to interact with a wide range of travellers and customers.
Most students come to New Zealand with a qualification already –
meaning they also come with life experience, work exper ience, and the
ability to learn quickly.They identify where the gaps in their knowledge
are and aren’t afraid to ask for help – which is hugely valuable in a
new workplace. Those who study hospitality management at Auckland
Institute of Studies also take part in a three month internship with
brands as well-known as Accor, Her itage, and Millennium .
Our top tips for hiring inter national students: -
• Understand that telephone interviews may be challenging for
inter national students (as they can be even for native Kiwis) and offer
in-person interviews where possible
• Explain what you expect very clearly – many may have worked
in very different hospitality environments in which they were told
exactly what to do and left little room for autonomy, so need to be
given per mission to make decisions n
