Building their skills: Barista training for Sunshine and Watergardens customers

The team at Campbell Page Sunshine recently delivered a Food Hygiene and Barista course to customers who attend the Sunshine and Watergardens Hubs.

Jesuit Social Services delivered the course for 16 of our customers across Westgate. – Emine Jeffrey, Regional Service Manager, Westgate

A coffee machine was set up to ensure that all customers who attended were given hands-on experience.

All of our customers were enthusiastic, engaged by the trainers and having fun while building new skills.

Our customers took orders from staff and our other customers. It was a great to see them showing interest, being open to feedback and seeking acknowledgment for their coffee making skills. – Emine

The biggest highlight was seeing the customers enjoy learning and putting their new skills into practice. The excitement of the day was felt by all involved, with visitors to the office commenting on the fresh coffee smell as it permeated through the whole office.

Customers were grateful for the opportunity to learn new skills in an environment that they already felt comfortable in. 

All participants received a Certificate of Participation.

A great day was had by all customers, with some now considering careers in hospitality. – Emine
