Support for migrants into hospitality roles

As Australia’s hospitality industry suffers from a nationwide labour shortage, a new program in New South Wales is skilling migrant people into the workforce.
HTN, part of the IntoWork Group, is delivering a one-of-a-kind digital migrant skills platform, Hospitality Without Borders, to address the hospitality skills shortage in NSW. The program will provide free support, personalised assessment, and further education across a number of different pathways to help migrants gain a trade qualification.
Within the program, participants are provided with an individualised insights report on skills, training pathways and occu-pational matching, with the objective of fast-tracking career competencies aligned to industry skills needs in NSW.

The program offers a wide range of apprenticeships, including baker, chef, pastry cook, waiter and more.

With the latest data revealing 200,000 staff are needed nationwide to help the hospitality industry rebuild from pandemic lockdowns, HTN CEO Christine Zechowski says now is a great time to get into hospitality, “For over 25 years, HTN has been at the forefront of training, mentoring and developing world class apprentice chefs. The hospitality industry has been impacted significantly by the COVID-19 crisis, with the temporary closure of restaurants, cafes and bars,” Ms Zechowski said.

“Our program is designed to support migrants in developing the necessary skills and confidence to succeed in the hospi-tality sector. Whether you are new to the industry or seeking to enhance your existing skills, this program is the perfect steppingstone for their career.”

Hospitality Without Borders is funded by the NSW Government Trade Pathways Innovation Fund. Trade Pathways Innovation Fund enables the delivery of industry-led projects that enhance pathways to trade qualifications.
