This course has been built from listening to people who work in restaurants and cafe's in Traralgon, Morwell, Moe, Glengarry, Churchill and Yallourn North. 

We have had conversations with over 50 local food businesses.

We ask them what they look for when they employ someone and you would be surprised with the answers.

Our course is based on those answers.

We have heard waiters, waitresses, bar managers, barista's, chefs, kitchen hands and almost anyone you can think of who works with food. 

Our four day course covers the things you need to know from the start.

Our network offers potentials to connect with local people who can make a difference to someone with a passion for food

11 July 2017 • Hospitality Training Course - Serving the Valley

I learnt many things in the four days of this course: the importance of having the right attitude - and having the ability to 'fake it til you become it' is something that stood out as being a useful skill in the hospitality industry (particularly when you are feeling under the weather). Alongside this I also relevant hospitality skills such as plate carrying, cutlery presentation, and self-presentation (grooming). I also found it useful when we were informed about the different ways in which you can take an order. Gaining some experience in the industry was incredibly useful and gave me an understanding of how dedicated these individuals are (who work in the cafes and restaurants). I have a more respect for them now than I did before beginning the course. If people I know are looking to gain new skills, and possibly end up with a job, I will recommend this course.
