Who is it for?

Adults (18+) with a learning disability who would like to develop their skills in a catering environment.

The programme includes some theory but most units are practical sessions within a working cafe environment.

  • Principles of Healthy Eating
  • Basic Food Hygiene
  • Health & Safety in the Kitchen
  • Food Preparation & Cooking
  • Customer Service Skills
  • The course is a great way to develop skills for independent living or for progression into learning & employment opportunities.

    When is it happening?

    We will be delivering a rolling programme of four 12 week courses throughout 2018.

    January - March
    April-June
    July-September
    October-December

    What's next?

    If you enjoy our 12 week course and want to keep on learning, or if you feel you would benefit from a long term training opportunity our ‘Skills for Life’ project may be for you.

    Additional units will be covered, with participants learning at their own pace and developing a wider range of knowledge and skills.
