NSW government addresses digital skills in hospitality

The NSW government is equipping the next generation of chefs and bakers with the technology skills to bridge the digital skills gap for hospitality workers.

For the first time, apprentices and students studying Certificate III in Baking and Commercial Cookery at TAFE NSW Wollongong will complete technology units, helping students build the digital literacy skills they need to succeed in their studies and in the workplace.

In the last 12 months, there’s been a 22% increase in demand for chef roles across the Illawarra region, said to be triple the national average.

“Hospitality workers play a critical role right across the Illawarra, for locals and tourists alike,” says Minister for the Illawarra and the South Coast Ryan Park.

“We know that digital innovation is changing the landscape of our tourism industry. Digital skills are vital to future-proof the workforce, ensuring the Illawarra remains a premier tourist destination.”

TAFE NSW Wollongong campus has a number of hospitality courses including:

  • Certificate II in Cooking
  • Certificates II and III in Baking
  • Certificates II and III in Hospitality
  • Certificate III in Commercial Cookery
  • Certificate III in Cake and Pastry
