The Private Hotel School : Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Education

Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Education NQF level 7

The aim of this programme is to offer candidates (developers, teachers, trainers, managers) who already have a generic or specific qualification (at least 360 credits registered on the NQF level 6) but with limited background in hospitality management or culinary arts and/or consumer studies teaching, as well as those who are already training or teaching in the GET or FET bands, support in the form of part-time, off campus or distance learning, further education. This creates an opportunity to advance their specialized knowledge and skills so that they can teach/train/manage in these areas of specialization. Typically candidates who apply for this qualification will match one of the following profiles:

· With a Diploma in Hospitality Management, who has progressed in their careers to a position where they are training managers in a large institution and who want to “top-up”.
· Educators with a general teaching qualification, who are teaching hospitality and tourism related subjects on the GET or FET bands, but with limited or no subject field qualifications

The Advanced Diploma in Hospitality Education (Management) will contribute meaningfully to specialization in these subject– areas and to the individual continuing professional development of participants. By attaining this qualification the student would therefore be able to play a significant role in the provision of training and facilitating as required by the Department of Education and Hospitality as a field of study.

There are not many similar programmes available and even less programmes offered on a distance learning mode, with specific reference to hospitality education/management as a field of study.

Provision is made, where possible, for flexible entry routes which can include recognition of prior learning (RPL) with regard to general admission as well as additional requirements for the programme. Credit accumulation and transfer (CAT) for a completed qualification can be recognized as meeting part of the requirements for this qualification.
