5.1. Australia

«In Australia education is delivered through a network of Training Packages designed for each industry. The package is the Tourism Hospitality and Events Training Package and has a number of qualifications leading to job outcomes.» (Clive Hartley Senior Head Teacher, Food & Beverage/Event Management TAFE, Sydney).

- Waiting as a career is not officially recognised as an apprenticeship by the government - Only few restaurants can afford to employ a sommelier. The role is usually taken by the owner or the restaurant manager

- Wine lists in many suburbia and country towns are very small and offer only local wines

- Wine consumption per capita : 22.3 (2006)

- The hospitality industry has never officially recognised the job (sommelier). - Many Australians tend to find the sommelier intimidating.

- Things are changing and the Sommelier Association is becoming more important - Hospitality students can graduate without studying wine

- Each qualification is devised and discussed by bodies with representatives in the hospitality industry. The number of wine units are increasing

- Students leaving the courses do not have the skills and knowledge to be able to talk confidently about wine

- Customers in Australia are becoming more knowledgeable and that can be a disadvantage for the students

- Students come back to college to pick up specialist knowledge on wine and enrol in short courses

Advanced diploma of hospitality:

28 core units must be completed

15 elective units must be completed

Career opportunities: food and beverage manager, executive chef...

Wine courses are electives:

- Serve food and beverage to customers 110 hours

- Provide food and beverage service 80 hours

- Provide table service of alcoholic beverages 50 hours

- Conduct a product tasting for alcoholic beverages 40 hours - Provide specialised advice on imported wines 40 hours

- Provide specialised advice on Australian wines 40 hours - Manage the sale of service of wine 80 hours
