Work Term

PGCM 171 Work Term is a full-time paid work experience. It is monitored by the College and evaluation is completed by the employer and program instructors. Experiential learning is effective because it provides students with opportunities to acquire supervisory skills and competencies that are applicable to their future careers. This approach recognizes that a supervisor requires significant practice of the principles and skills learned during study and looks to the hospitality industry to provide an environment in which this practice can take place. This work term gives students an opportunity to apply and extend academic knowledge while employed with hospitality employers throughout B.C., Canada and the world.

The student must have completed all required courses in the first year of the program with a minimum of 65% and maintain a cumulative program GPA of 2.0.
