The first component of the ‘Hotstart’ program involves eligible participants undertaking five (5) consecutive days of face-to-face pre-employment training delivered at Thoroughbred Park – Canberra. The pre-employment training program will give participants a ‘taste’ of front and back of house hospitality activities and prepare them for a post-Covid workplace.
Topics covered include customer service, basic cookery, responsible service of alcohol, infection control, food handling, personal hygiene and workplace safety. To access the funding for training, all eligible participants will be enrolled in a Certificate II in Kitchen Operations through the ACT and Federal Governments JobTrainer initiative.
On the final day of the pre-employment training, participants will be directly involved in a
OzHarvest ‘Cook for a Cause’ event. This will involve participants working with chefs from our
partner organisations to prepare rescued food for delivery to the OzHarvest network.
