WARMAN, SK – Great Plains College is pleased to announce the addition of a Hotel and Restaurant Management program to its Warman Campus offerings. The full-time diploma program is set to begin in September 2023 and applications are now open.
Through a combination of classroom learning and hands-on practicums, students will build the core management skills needed for a leadership role, while also gaining knowledge and experience of hotel and restaurant operations from the ground up.
“The City of Warman and City of Martensville are growing at impressive rates, which has generated an economic spin off in all industries in this region, and as a result we have seen growth in the hospitality industry in our communities.” said Jill Jenkins, region manager at Great Plains College. “We are really excited to add this program to our offerings at Warman Campus. This program will prepare students for a successful career in hospitality and will produce skilled workers to help meet labour market demands in this growing industry.”
Courses will include accounting, human resources, marketing, and hotel and restaurant planning and management, along with practical skill development such as cooking and food preparation, and beverage services.
“Along with theory, this program also includes practicums and a bistro, catering and liquor component, where students will have the opportunity to prepare and cater events for the public,” added Jenkins. “We look forward to finding unique ways of partnering with local businesses in Warman and Martensville to offer these opportunities to the students.”
Anyone interested in the Hotel and Restaurant Management diploma is encouraged to apply before April 30, 2023 to be automatically considered for an Entrance Scholarship of $500-$5,000.
