Hospitality teachers will be able to give students the opportunity to learn the right blend of knowledge to kick-start a piping hot hospitality career with ServiceIQ’s new blended courses – Coffee Appreciation (Level 3) and Barista Skills (Level 2). Not only does the new course learning material assist with teaching the art of making a brilliant cup of coffee, it’s also brimming with useful information on the origin and production of coffee. These two new blended learning products follow on from the success of the blended Cookery in Schools courses that were launched in November 2017.
ServiceIQ’s blended products comprise a mix of online and paper-based learning material to assist teachers with providing a more engaging learning experience for students. The online learning material for both coffee courses features graphics, colour photographs and quizzes. And with carefully designed navigation, it’s easy to find your way around each section.
ServiceIQ Chief Executive Dean Minchington is excited that combining new technology with traditional teaching methods is becoming popular with teachers using blended material in the classroom. “Our Cookery in Schools courses are an important starting point for lots of great young chefs and the new online coffee course is another exciting addition,” he said. “The online material helps teachers offer a more in-depth experience by giving students a full understanding of what goes into a great cup of coffee. And being able to learn the skills to make coffee gives students a kick-starter to get a job when they leave school, whether they want to earn money while they study or create a career as a professional barista.”
