Essential requirements
Centres must have access to a variety of food and beverage production and service systems, including the specialist equipment necessary to illustrate operation. Access to suitable facilities for food and beverage operations is essential. This can be a realistic working environment within the centre or a suitable commercial business that learners can use to implement their plans. Centres that have a catering store are advised to make use of this ‘real’ facility to demonstrate aspects of purchasing.

Employer engagement and vocational contexts
Hotelympia and other hospitality exhibitions provide excellent opportunities for learners to view specialist food and beverage equipment and systems, and to collect information. Site visits to a range of hospitality businesses will enable learners to experience the systems they have studied. Local businesses may allow their facilities to be used by learners to stage events. Employers may run events that could provide assessment opportunities. Industrial placements or part-time employment within food and beverage operations will help learners to experience different systems in a range of environments. In particular learners who wish to pursue a career in food and beverage management should look for these opportunities.
