InterContinental Hotels Group has just launched a branded classroom at the North Sydney campus of William Blue College of Hospitality Management.
The partnership is an extension of IHG's multiple partnerships with leading tertiary providers nationally. Within IHG's InterContinental, Crowne Plaza and Holiday Inn properties across Australia are hundreds of students either currently completing their studies or recently graduated from formal industry studies. Many of IHG's current senior management are graduates from these tertiary partners.
In the IHG Classroom, college students complete classes in gastronomy, wine studies, cuisine and food and beverage management. The classroom represents the connection between education, practical application and career progression.
Located adjacent to the college's award-winning training restaurant, the IHG Classroom will also host seminars and industry events.
The event was attended by about 50 people - including IHG senior leaders, college management, Think Education representatives and college students working with IHG.
