 Qualification Description

This is a nationally recognised qualification that provides individuals with the skills and knowledge to perform in a range of varied activities in the creative industries where there is a clearly defined range of contexts.

FOH students are expected to complete all theoretical components. This will involve workshops, formal classes, online learning and self-directed work at home.

Students will be required to purchase the FOH uniform in Year 9.
