Catering Management Course
- Tutor is available to students
- Certificate of completion available and is included in the price
In all events, no matter how big or small, catering food is very important. Therefore, there should be a formulated plan and implemented management strategies for the entire catering operation, and the timelines for food production and staffing must be met. Careful planning ensures that the food and other services will be delivered properly to the client’s satisfaction, and it minimises unexpected surprises.
A strong organizational skill is required of a catering manager to be able to identify, delegate, and execute operational tasks to meet and even exceed client expectations.
Interaction and communication is also extremely important. A simple instruction may be interpreted by each staff differently, based on their own understanding, abilities, even their experiences. Specific instructions must therefore be given to each staff, with a level of understanding about their background, to ensure proper implementation of management plans.
At the end of this course, students shall learn how to: (1) understand the catering industry; (2) enhance skills; (3) be familiar with services and equipments; (4) understand the menu; (5) be familiar with drinks; (6) gain knowledge about table services; and (7) be familiar with events.
To achieve these goals, this course shall make use of interactive materials to present the concepts of the topics to be discussed. Assessments shall be done after the entire course to check for knowledge retention and understanding.
