As a low risk RTO preferred provider, we are the perfect choice to help students with their chosen future studies.

Our real strength is in our industry placements – all our trainers currently work within the industry so we are able to offer high quality industry placements for all our students. Some of our key industry partners include the Intercontinental Hotel, Stamford Grand, Hilton International, Charminar’s Indian Restaurants and Ambassador’s Hotel, to name a few.

We also have the opportunity to offer schools guest speakers / industry tours re: Business, Management, Hospitality and Kitchen Operations to compliment the training that we offer.

Case Study – Paralowie HS

Salford College has, for the past 4 years, run the Kitchen Operations (Cert.ll), Hospitality (Cert.ll and partial Cert.lll programs) for Paralowie HS. Last year 42 students successfully completed this program, this represented a successful completion rate of over 95%.

“Feedback has also been extremely positive from schools. Staff teaching in adjoining areas provided very positive reports about the quality of training and the professional approach of the trainers. In particular the teachers noted the student’s engagement and relationship with the trainers. This was also reinforced by the absence of any student behaviour management issues. 

At an administrative level, host schools were impressed with the details that were handled before courses began – such as the development of clear behaviour management strategies that worked within school structures, visits and equipment checks by Salford staff, support to purchase required equipment and pre arrangement around ICT access, software and hardware.”
