The project

Food catering & hospitality training that will help you move towards, or find, sustainable employment in the food, catering and hospitality sector.

How it works

The programme is 20 weeks; the first two months involve attending a Monday morning practical training course to gain foundational skills in food, catering and hospitality, plus a Tuesday afternoon for employability training and support. The next 3 months involve doing an on-the-job training placement in our on-site social enterprise, Space Kitchen, where trainees can gain experience in our operational café and kitchen, front of house, our pizza delivery project, community garden or conference centre. Upon completion of this training, we support trainees into a positive destination in the catering and hospitality sector.
