Recently, our Hospitality Certificate III class did some on site practical work at the “Colour your Mind Art exhibition”. The aim of the event was to raise recognition of youth mental health with art, poetry and song.
The Hospitality team served up food and drinks from local restaurants to 60+ guests.
For most students, this was their first taste in the hospitality industry. All came out of the experience unscathed and motivated to do more of it.
Event organisers were happy with the level of service provided by our students and noted how professional they looked. A testament to Hospitality Trainer and Training Manager Renee Chetty.
“I like KAPOW cause the trainers are bloody great and helpful. Looking forward to getting a job.”
“This is a necessary course for people with low esteem, life skills and self worth. There is a sense of achievement at the conclusion of the course with the added bonus of feeling that going forward is achievable.”
“Now I don’t think I am below anybody. I feel different from what I used to believe. I am treated like an equal individual and my opinions are listened to with respect and courtesy.”
“Before becoming a client of Key Employment I had tried to get a job part time. My friends were all getting jobs, but I wasn’t able to get one. I also found trying to apply for jobs on the internet hard because I am dyslexic. Thanks to Key Employment I am now employed as a kitchen hand.”
“The trainer has helped me overcome barriers by building up confident work ethics and helped me to understand being in a formal working environment. Key Training is a social environment as well as a learning environment where we are all treated equal.”
