Impressive Facilities For a Dynamic Education
At our Sunshine Coast school campus you not only experience a rainforest setting and stunning gardens but also gain an appreciation of the first class facilities provided for our students.
Whipbird Restaurant and Trades Skill Centre
Tourism and Hospitality is not only the largest employer on the Sunshine Coast, but also nationally, and perhaps internationally. So, it makes good sense for school students to learn skills that will allow them to gain employment virtually anywhere in the world.
Nambour Christian College is one of just a small number of schools in Queensland to take the step from offering hospitality subjects to installing a fully operational commercial training kitchen and café restaurant.
The new Trade Skills Centre incorporates a “State of the Art” Commercial Pastry/ Baking kitchen and Retail Shop which form part of Hospitality.
The NCC Hospitality facility incorporates the following:
- ‘state of the art’ commercial kitchen with all the very latest equipment, including an additional bakery and pastry kitchen
- 120 seat restaurant with separate alfresco dining area
- fully equipped coffee station and non-alcoholic bar
- reception area and retail bakery
NCC Trades Skills Centre is offering courses out of school hours, to our students, family members, friends and the wider community in topics i.e:
- RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol)
- Gluten Free (pastries, breads, savoury)
- Modern Cake Decorating
- Knife Skills
- Foods from Around the World
- Pastries and Breads
NCC is the only school in Queensland and one of three throughout Australia that offers FDF20510 – Certificate II in Retail Baking Assistance.
At NCC, we offer Nationally Accredited Courses in Hospitality to our fulltime student in the areas of:
SIT10216 – Certificate I in Hospitality
SIT20416 – Certificate II in Kitchen Operations
SIT20316 – Certificate II in Hospitality
FDF20510 – Certificate II in Retail Baking Assistance
Our students can be assured that they are prepared for traineeships, apprenticeships and employment with the most exacting and professional of employers, anywhere in the world.
Year 12 students graduating from NCC Hospitality regularly secure apprenticeships at Palazzo Versace resort on the Gold Coast and at local quality resorts such as the Noosa Sheraton and the Palmer Coolum Resort (formerly Hyatt Regency) on the Sunshine Coast.
