Golden opportunity to learn on Coffs Coast
The agreement, which follows two years of development, has led to the creation of a tailored program of training which will be offered to all moteliers and motel staff in Australia's largest motel group, which has 325 motels in all states, including seven on the Coffs Coast.
TAFE Coffs Harbour head teacher of Hospitality Management John Woodcock said the course included seven units covering basic financing, housekeeping, office reservations and procedures, workplace hygiene, occupational health and safety, security and staff recruitment and selection and would be offered through an intensive four-day course as well as through flexible learning options. This week the members of the board of Golden Chain are taking the course and helping to fine-tune it in the process.
The Chairman of Golden Chain Motor Inns Ltd, Nambucca Resort owner John Sheppard, said it was a first for the industry and was designed to produce more capable, professional managers.
