View Full Course Description
This course, as described in the Business Services Training Package focuses on the skills and knowledge required for an individual in their role working as developing and emerging leaders and managers in a range of enterprise and industry.

As well as assuming responsibility for their own performance, individuals at this level provide leadership, guidance and support to others. They also have some responsibility for organising and monitoring the output of their team. They apply solutions to a defined range of predictable and unpredictable problems, and analyse and evaluate information from a variety of sources.

As taught at Australian College of Trade course participants are exposed to the hospitality business operations that occur within the Thornbury Theatre entertainment complex. This beautiful and stately venue has been home to entertainment and private events for close to 100 years and is an iconic building in Melbourne’s inner Northern region. These observations of a real life business in action assist participants in the application of knowledge gained in theoretical written assessments that are taught as part of the course.
