The Coffs Coast Advocate

Planto piemans on the job for youth

PIEMANS at the Planto has only been in business a month, but already they're providing learning opportunities for Coffs Coast youth.

Owner/manager Craig Mills has put up his hand to provide on-the-job-learning opportunities by hosting a John Paul College Year 11 student for a one-week work placement as part of the HSC Hospitality course.

Despite still settling in himself, Craig has offered his business as an option for local students to complete their hospitality work placements. Experience in a real working environment is an important facet of the work placement program and complements the learning students undertake at school.

Craig said he realises how important it is for students to gain first-hand experience and is happy to share his skills and knowledge of the hospitality industry.

The program was co-ordinated by North Coast Youth Careers Connections, who co-ordinate work placement opportunities for students studying Vocational Education Courses in Years 11 and 12.

To find out more about the Work Placement Program please contact North Coast Youth Career Connections on 6653 2900.

NCYCC is funded by the Department of Education Employment and Workplace Relations as part of the Career Advice Australia initiative.
