(Year 2)Te Aho o Te Kura Pounamu
Paris is in the second year of the Hospitality programme, completing Level 3 unit standards as part of her NCEA Level 3 qualification. “I really enjoyed the programme when I did it last year. We had the opportunity to learn about both Front of House and cooking. This year we spend all our time in the kitchen”.
A particular highlight for Paris has been developing her team communication skills which are vital when working in a busy professional kitchen. She’s also able to put into practice all the cooking and front of house skills she has in her part time work at a local restaurant.
Paris would rate the Trades Hospitality programme as 10 out of 10! “I like the learning style at NMIT”.
Paris would like to study at NMIT fulltime in the future. Her aim is to complete the Diploma in Culinary Arts and then travel, where she knows her chefing skills will always be in demand.
