Cafe serving training opportunities for jobseekers


Mai-Wel LabourForce Solutions’ (MWLFS) commercial kitchen training space, ’The Café’, made possible by funds raised at Mai-Wel’s 2017 Annual Gala Ball, is a valuable resource for jobseekers to experience first-hand the equipment and processes of a commercial kitchen.

Twelve jobseekers are currently using the space for their Certificate II in Kitchen Operations delivered by Teresa Campos of REACH for Training. 

The thirteen-week course is delivered two days per week at the MWLFS Maitland office, incorporating  classroom-based learning and a full day of practical activities in The Café. Additionally, participants will complete 20 hours of work experience in the kitchens/cafés at Club Maitland City and Opal Rutherford aged care. 

At the completion of the course in  mid-June, participants will have the skills for various hands-on roles in kitchen environments including aged care facilities, pubs, clubs and cafes.
