This research looks at the existing standard of hospitality institutes curriculum with special reference to the culinary syllabus in India and proposes various measures to reduce the gap between education imparted by hospitality institutes and the industry expectations from students. This research highlights the need of hospitality education revolution which needs to be upgraded, to be at par with global education standards. The results of this analysis can be used to identify and streamline the standardization process of hospitality education across India. The culinary syllabus has to be prepared with the right combination of faculty and industry experts to strike the right balance between demand and supply. The anticipated outcome of this research is to establish such a hospitality curriculum which should comprise and reflect a selection of knowledge, skills, values and attitudes relevant and valued by the profession, subject disciplines and by the wider society. Keywords: Culinary Institute, Hospitality Education
1. To scrutinize if there is a need for better culinary syllabus than the existing one. 2. To assess if there is a gap between theory and practice, offered by academicians and acceptance by industry professionals. 3. To identify if relevant faculty have adequate educational qualifications RESEARCH PROBLEM
1. Non existence of standardized uniform quality culinary syllabus (theory and practical). 2. Faculties education and industry experience co-relates with students learning process.
In many countries, the traditional approach has largely been modified towards a more integrated approach to curriculum planning and design. An integrated approach is still subject centered but transcends the traditional subject boundaries. At culinary arts training institutes globally, new and exciting ideas are taking shape. Food styles have moved so fast in the past few years that it is difficult to keep pace with the changing gastronomic trends across the globe. Le Cordon Bleu operates the world’s most comprehensive network of hospitality institutes where students spend plenty of time learning the fundamentals that set French cuisine apart and much attention is given to world cuisine and modern culinary techniques. The Art Institutes is a North American chain of educational centers. The International Centre for Culinary Arts (ICCA) Dubai is a world-class vocational school that teaches a mix of Continental and regional culinary methods. As a student, you’ll go beyond basic culinary practices and cooking skills to learn leadership tactics and skills that you can put to use in a multicultural professional setting. Johnson and Wales University founded at Rhode Island in 1914 relies on the latest industry input to stay grounded in emerging culinary breakthroughs without abandoning time-tested techniques. The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) is one of the most prestigious culinary institutes in the US. At the core of the CIA learning curve is an astonishing 1,300 hours of hands-on training in ultra-modern kitchens and bakeries. INDIAN SCENARIO

Science 1 in the Early Years
Assessment: Item 1- Views of teaching and promoting science of young learners
The pedagogy of play can be hard to understand and part of the reason for this is it’s so difficult to explain how children learn by play because play isn’t simply; it is complex. Each child begins their early childhood education with a set of skills and prior knowledge that is influenced by their family, culture and past experiences (Fellows &Oakley, 2010). The past knowledge should become the foundation for developing an understanding of scientific concepts (Duschl, Schweingruber & Shouse, 2007). Children are naturally inquisitive, creative and aware of the world around them (Campbell & Jobling, 2012). Play is an important development tool and an effective way to teach children scientific concepts while using their prior knowledge (Preston, Mules, Baker & Frost, 2007). Learning science through play shows children that science is useful and enjoyable and is a significant aspect of the real world (Bulunuz, 2013). This essay will review teaching science through play, theorists who support play and the way in which the Australian curriculum and EYLF support play pedagogy.
Science and Play
Play pedagogy is a context for learning through which children organise and make sense of their social worlds, as they engage actively with people, objects and representations. Research shows...
...Functionally Literate Filipinos: An Educated Nation
Philippine Education for All (EFA) 2015 National
Action Plan Implementation
I. General Introduction
Filipinos have deep regard to for education. Education occupies a central place in Philippine political, economic social and cultural life. It has always been strongly viewed as a pillar of national development and a primary avenue for social and economic mobility.
A clear evidence of the value placed on education is the proportion of the national government budget going to the sector. The Department of Education (DepEd), the country’s biggest bureaucracy, is given the highest budget allocation among government agencies each year as required by the 1987 Philippine Constitution.
The 1987 Constitution likewise guarantees the right to education of every Filipino. It provided that, “The State shall protect and promote the right of all citizens to quality education at all levels and shall take appropriate steps to make education accessible to all.”
The right of every Filipino to quality basic education is further emphasized in Republic Act 9155 or the Governance of Basic Education Act of 2001. Along with Republic Act 6655 or the Free Secondary Education Act, these laws reaffirm the policy of the State to protect and promote the...

...The development of comparativeeducation
Human beings are in the habit of making comparisons between things that around them. Comparison can take place wherever we have more than one thing that has the same purpose. We compare to make up our minds and to choose between two or more choices. Comparing can take place also for more scientific reasons for example to find out the relationship existing between, or among the things being compared.
But what iscomparativeeducation? It is fully established academic field of study that involves the analysis and comparison of educational systems, such as those in different countries. The main goal of this field is to improve the quality of educational systems. One example of large scale comparative macroanalysis is the PISA study, in which Finland has ranked very highly each year.
The historical development of comparativeeducation can be divided into three or five stages depending on the bases the division has been made. The three stages are: descriptive stage, predictive stage and scientific stage. If the division is made according the motive of comparativestudy and genre of work the stages are (1) the travelers’ tales, (2) travelers with a specific educational focus, (3) understanding of other nations, (4) study of ‘national character’ and its...

Education is at the forefront of reform both locally and internationally. Through the turn of the century, initiatives have been put into place in order to catapult nations into a contending status as they relate to other nations. For much of the past quarter century, at least since the Reagan presidency, public education in the United States, and abroad, has come under sharp criticism and attack. Critics have introduced all manner of reforms, many with a decidedly free market or neocorporatist bent (Bulkley & Fusarelli, 2007). All and all, with the mounting availability of opt out options, schools must seek to retain as much of the student body as possible. There are charter schools and private schools being erected seemingly effortlessly. Public schools may lose their student base to privatized education in two specific methods. The first is the contracting out model, in which a state school has some or all of its educational functions contracted out to the private sector under accountability guidelines established by the local and/or central government. Education management companies such as Edison Schools in the...
...Study of Tourism, Hospitality and Event
Nowadays, with the rapid development of economy, tourism, hospitality and event industries are faced with more opportunities, but more challenges as well, such as the more competitive market and similar industries, personalized customer demands and higher service qualities requirements and so on. Therefore, studying and understanding the three industries, discovering the interrelated nature of them and the way they promote each other will contribute to promoting the better development of them. This article is mainly divided into two sections, the first section is to introduce the theoretical point of view of tourism, hospitality and event. Subsequently, the second section aims at exploring their interrelated nature based on the understanding of those definitions and perspectives.
Because of the complexity of tourism phenomenon and distinct methods of thinking, scholars have different understanding of the essential characteristics of tourism, therefore there is also a big difference in definitions of tourism. According to the most representative 63 definitions in the world, Zhang (2008) summarized five main features of tourism concept, including: first, it is the movement of people, which refers to population mobility that people move from one place to another. Second, travel has one or more motivations. Third, tourism activities require certain infrastructure, marketing...

Nowadays, the condition of our earth is no further the same as it was a few years back. The earth has been going through a lot of changes due to this unpleasant matter called global warming. Global warming affects the climate quite badly and creates some problems to environment that spread rapidly. These changes of our precious earth slowly attract people's attention to build their concern towards this beautiful massive creation. One of the dynamic industries that is recently being extremely concern about going green to prevent further global warming is hospitality industry. Therefore, in the following paragraphs below, I am going to discuss about why hotels and resorts should be going green, what kind of efforts and steps the hotels might be able to take, and the advantages and disadvantages of being environmental conscious.
Why a Hotel Should be Concern About Going Green
Hospitality is a very dynamic industry. Hotels and resorts are one of the hospitality industries that are everywhere and keep growing in huge numbers every single year. People are part of the products and these days, people are being more aware towards their environment and society in order to participate to help saving the earth. The reason is because global warming causes troubles that link to a...
...of productivity and responsible citizenship. When we fail to provide children with what they need to build a strong foundation for healthy and productive lives, we put our future prosperity and security at risk.” (Centre on the Developing Child, Harvard University, 2010)
Over the last decade there have been many changes in settings and children’s services in Ireland. Central to these changes there has been a major emphasis put on the impotance of early years care andeducation and improving the affordability and acessability of childcare and enhancing quality in early years settings in Ireland. In the past the whole area of childcare was neglected and research repeatly found inequalities of provision for children in early years settings. Which in turn lead to government stating that there needed to be more highly quailifed staff in early years settings, to raise the standard of care for young children, thus the ECCE sector related degree courses were created. The Effective Provision of Pre-school Education Project (Sylva et al, 2004) found children achieved better outcomes in settings led by higher qualified staff.
Throughout this letter I am going to look at many issues that the minister needs to address within the early years sector so that we can get Irelands childcare sector up to the highest standard possible in order to give our children the best possible start in life. One of the issues that will make developing the early years...
