Eight ready and waiting
EMPLOYERS looking for hospitality staff during the busy summer holiday period are being urged to contact ETC, with eight job seekers recently graduating from a Certificate II in Hospitality now eager and skilled to work in the industry.
ETC's Acting CEO Jenny Barnett said the hands-on practical training the graduates had received meant they were ready to hit the ground running.
"Our job seekers have had the benefit of learning from a trainer who works in the industry - Trinette McPhee - the manager of the new Brandy's restaurant," Mrs Barnett said.
"In addition, they've have the opportunity to regularly practise their new skills at numerous cafes and restaurants, including Brandy's restaurant, as well as at events such as the Coffs Harbour Cup and ETC's Christmas party.
Trainer and assessor Trinette McPhee said as part of the nationally accredited course the students have obtained their Food Handling Certificate, Responsible Service of Alcohol and Barista skills.
"The course has been really comprehensive and has covered everything from customer service, working in a team environment, barista skills, bar skills, wine appreciation and leadership development," she said.
