It is always a hive of activity at the Hospitality Hub at TAFE Queensland’s Southport Campus.
With a sizeable commercial kitchen and a fully licensed restaurant that opens to the public on selected days, the facility is where students studying cookery, hospitality and events come together to practice in a live service environment.
The purpose-built facility is completely operated by the students, with supervision and guidance from teachers, to help them build skills that can take them straight into the workforce.

Hospitality student Ryan McGill told myGC he has enjoyed practicing his serving skills with real customers.
“The thing I love most about the course is just being able to get experience while learning. It is a very fun environment to learn in,” he said.
Cookery student Zahir Madini said the Hospitality Hub is one of a kind.
“Being trained by qualified cookery teachers and using state of the art equipment – it’s like working in a big hotel,” he told myGC.
“Right now we are experiencing live service, we are facing and interacting with real customers from outside, so it is certainly preparing us for the real world.”
