FREE TRAINING OPPORTUNITY FOR VICTORIAN HOSPITALITY WORKERS - COMPLETE A QUALIFICATION FOR FREE

We’ve had some chefs and front of house workers get in touch recently wondering if there was a way for them to study during the down time that they suddenly have due to COVID-19 business downturn.

As a family run, hospitality-only training provider - we too rely on the hospitality industry to be training and operating to survive. We’ve worked out a way for us to assist hospitality workers and businesses in this time of need - by offering free training opportunities.

RESOURCES FOR HOSPITALITY BUSINESSES


COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is creating challenges for hospitality businesses all over the world.


In our efforts to assist our hospitality clients we have put together a dedicated Hospitality Business Hub with information, practical advice and tips to deal with the COVID-19 challenge. 


We’ve split it into 3 sections – DO, SHARE & LEARN. DO are practical actions you can take in your business. SHARE are tips to communicate with your customers and market your business. LEARN provides resources on where you can access information that may assist you.


We will be adding to the page regularly and have decided to provide all this information with free access as a way to support both our clients and the hospitality industry as a whole. Feel free to access, link,  print off or share this web page.

Dean Normington

Operations Manager, Black Rhino Group

The best thing about having an organisation like AVTES involved in my business is that it gives me the freedom to step back and work on the business, to look at other opportunities and more importantly spend time with my family.

Adrian Alexander

Owner,

Cervo Cafe Bar

We experienced an increase in sales of well over half a million dollars ($500,000) and I credit a lot of that to the staff. Staff are confident in their roles and are motivated by having a recognised qualification.
