Identifying Competencies in the Food Service Industry. Final Report.
Wagner, Linda M.
This report documents a research project conducted to ascertain what specific occupational competencies are necessary for employees in the food service industry. Questionnaires were mailed to employers, in restaurants and hospitals and to graduates of high school and postsecondary food service programs. The respondents completed 316 position evaluations in 16 different job classifications. Most of the document consists of the tabulated survey data, summarized to list the competencies needed for the 16 jobs areas by common elements for all 16 and also by competencies believed significant for specific jobs. From these data a curriculum will be constructed based on realistic food service job competencies and articulated among secondary education, postsecondary vocational education, technical education, and higher education.
