Hospitality and Tourism Courses to Prepare You for Further Education

By Jason Subscribe to RSS | January 3rd 2012 | Views:

Have you applied to a hospitality degree or diploma program but have unfortunately not been accepted? Centennial College has a solution that will help you to get your foot in the education door through its Hospitality Foundations program. Presented as an "Alternate Offer" the program is designed for individuals who apply to, but do not meet admission requirements for a Centennial College post-secondary program in the area of hospitality, tourism and culture.

Applicants can't apply directly to this program. They must advised and assisted to register by the Centennial College Assessment and Advising Centre. To be considered for this these alternative hospitality and tourism courses, students must have completed and Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, or mature applicant status (19 years or older). In addition, students must complete the Centennial College English skills assessment before registering for this program. A score of 130 or 131 is required to begin this program. In some cases, students' skills assessment score will satisfy the requirements for their original program choice. Centennial College will notify them by sending an offer to their original program if there is still space available. 

Not only does this offering feature hospitality and tourism courses, the program also focuses on English fluency, including reading, writing, listening and speaking. All of these skills are required to be successful in a hospitality and tourism degree or diploma program as well as the field. One of the specific strengths of this offering is that it engages students in reflective practice to facilitate professional skill development while enhancing their communication competence in all language strands. Students will create personal and professional goals and work on strategies to help them achieve these goals.


Among the courses included in this program are: Foundations: Developing College Communication Skills (ESL) (an eight-hour per week integrated course designed to assist students in upgrading their English skills in the four areas:  reading, writing, speaking, and listening. While focusing on developing core language competencies, students will work with course materials drawn from their program areas); Theory of Food Fundamentals (as good food is the foundation on which the restaurant industry is built, it is imperative that one understands how to not only produce good food, but to do so in a safe, efficient and cost-effective manner. This course will introduce learners to the theoretical principles of food production); Geography and Tourism - Western Hemisphere (course examines earth sciences such as land formations, time zones and climate. There will include a basic introduction to plate tectonics); and more.

Once students have successfully completed the Hospitality Foundations program, they are equipped with all of the basics they need to transfer into the hospitality and tourism degree or diploma program of their choice. Graduates will enter into the program of their choice with a level of English that allows them the opportunity to be successful in an advanced level of study.
