CAPE Testimonial - Hospitality

Meg Rands

Practical makes perfect

The kitchen and simulated restaurant … has given me an insight into what it is like to work in a restaurant. You can try a bit of everything from learning how to make coffee and responsibly serving alcohol, to perfecting customer service and wine pairing.


In hospitality time is of the essence. Employers are crying out for graduates who know their way around a kitchen and have skills to hit the ground running. That’s why TAFE NSW is focussed on hands-on learning experiences, in real or closely simulated environments.

For TAFE NSW Hospitality student Meg, our fully-licensed training restaurant, Dharra Ngurang (Wiradjuri for eating out) is the perfect learning location.

The restaurant is run by our Commercial Cookery and Hospitality students and is open to the public. You can experience 3-course meals, table service, wine pairing and, of course, excellent customer service. It’s these skills that secure employment for our graduates.

There is no experience substitute for a full-service dining room with paying customers and real-time demands, to prepare students for life in this dynamic industry.
