Cooking, Baking, Patisserie, Hospitality, Hairdressing & Beauty Therapy / SMB Campus (Ballarat)

Stacey Gilligan - Education Manager, Service Industries

We offer training for a range of vocations that aim to delight customers, via outstanding service provision: from producing artisan bread products, sumptuous meals, celebratory cakes to providing services that pamper the body and mind, such as beauty therapy.

We provide industry-relevant and connected learning programs. Delivery options including offsite, face-to-face, online and workplace delivery. You might be looking to start your career, or you might be an employer wanting to up-skill your staff. Either way, our programs can help to move you, or your business, forward.

Gain the edge by perfecting real world skills, and shine in the competitive and stimulating industries that are central to entertainment and tourism. Invest in yourself and become a qualified chef, patisserie, baking or hospitality professional. You can potentially work in boutique cafes or bars, restaurants, ski resorts, cruise ships, event catering, or five-star hotels. There are career opportunities that could take you all around the world.

Alternatively, hairdressing or beauty therapy may be your passion. Innovation is central to the way we have designed our hair and beauty course delivery. Our hairdressing programs give the choice of a traditional apprenticeship model, or an innovative apprenticeship alternative, which prepares industry-ready professionals.
