TAFE students shine at Industry Dinner

Cooma Apprentice Chefs, Events and Tourism students presented a degustation dinner to Hospitality businesses this week.

Hosted by TAFE NSW Illawarra Cooma, around 40 guests representing local industry had the opportunity to witness the creativity of students in motion.

Guests were presented with a five course degustation menu and guests attending thought the event was of the highest standard.

Deirdre Jory, Head Teacher of Hospitality and Tourism is enthusiastic about her new role at TAFE NSW Illawarra Cooma.

“It is great to be able to celebrate the culmination of the students’ TAFE training with this dinner for employers and others in the Industry,” she says.

Recognising the value of establishing and maintaining local industry links, Deirdre believes there are great opportunities for apprenticeships and related hospitality work.

“I’m looking for new ways to partner with Hospitality and Tourism in Cooma and the Snowy Mountains region. We’d like to partner with Industry to source the right people,” says Deirdre.

“A career in hospitality or tourism opened so many doors for me and so many others,” she says.
