Istituto Professionale di Stato per i Servizi Alberghieri e della Ristorazione


I.P.S.S.A.R. is a Hotel and Catering school in San Benedetto del Tronto, a seaside resort on the Adriatic coast, in the province of Ascoli Piceno, Marche, Italy. Our training course consists of two years of basic education, where students study core subjects, like Italian, History, Maths and two foreign languages (English and either French or German), in addition all the students are trained in three vocational subjects, Kitchen, Restaurant/Bar Service and Reception.
After this course, students choose to specialize in one vocational skill and, after practicing and studying it for one year (16 hours a week for Kitchen and Restaurant/Bar Service or 12 hours a week for Reception), they sit for exams and take their first qualification (NVQ).
If they want to proceed further, they can attend another two-year course either to become T.S.R. (Food and Beverage manager) or T.S.T. (Tourism manager). After a final exam, they get a state diploma by which they are admitted to University. While attending this final course, students are specially trained for 600 hours (400 theory/200 placement in first class companies).
