CIT's Department of Tourism & Hospitality is delighted to announce the next in its series of Tourism, Hospitality & Culinary Roadshows, which will take place on Tuesday 23rd February 2016 in the Celtic Ross Hotel, Rosscarbery, West Cork.
Designed to inform second-level schools students and their parents about the opportunities and training available in the areas of Tourism, Hospitality, Culinary, Hotels, Events, Catering, Restaurant and Bar Management, the event will include cookery demonstrations, ‘mocktail’ demonstrations and restaurant skills demonstrations, along with a question and answer session with a panel including current students, new graduates, lecturers and industry practitioners.
The event is supported by the Cork Branch of the Irish Hotels Federation and its Chairman Darragh Brady (Clarion Hotel) and Branch Secretary Neil Grant (Celtic Ross Hotel).
Adrian Gregan, Head of the Department of Tourism & Hospitality explains “We are delighted to be training such a large cohort of students, who through both their academic studies and practical experience will emerge into industry in the next number of years ready to meet the demands of a hospitality industry which, thankfully, has returned to growth. Through this Roadshow we want to inform other potential entrants and their families as to what opportunities exist for them in terms of their studies and in terms of employment and career prospects. Our research has shown that there is a significant demand for such an event and our last Roadshow which was held in Midleton for the East Cork area proved very successful.”
The Department of Tourism and Hospitality at CIT encompasses the areas of Culinary Arts, Tourism, Hospitality and Bar Management. It has over 650 students and a team of dedicated student-centred industry experienced Lecturers across these disciplines and is located in a modern purpose-built building on CIT’s Bishopstown Campus.
