Cafe Training Project - Broomhouse (Change Kitchen Training - Broomhouse)
We provide training in a supportive cafe and kitchen environment.
Trainees get involved with a range of tasks including customer service, food preparation, baking, cleaning, dish washing and helping with outside catering orders. Our programme is great for people looking for catering experience before applying for jobs in the sector. It also suits people who are looking to build their confidence and increase their social skills through attending a structured programme.
Training is mainly on-the-job as trainees will rotate around the different areas (cafe, kitchen and food prep room). Our dedicated support worker works closely with trainees offering them person-centred support to enable them to carry out and complete tasks.
Who can attend?
Anyone with a barrier to employment over 15.
Trainees attend 1 or more shifts per week, from 9.30am-1pm. They can do the programme for up to a year.
