The aim of the skills set is to provide the skills and knowledge required for entry level employment or an apprenticeship in a commercial kitchen.
The Future Chef Job Ready Program runs for a total of four weeks, which is made up of a combination of training plus a work placement.
The participants will complete five nationally recognised units at a TAFE or training provider, and gain job ready skills and knowledge including food safety, preparing and presenting simple dishes, and how to use a range of kitchen equipment.
They will also complete five days of work placement in a working commercial kitchen, where they will get to use the skills learnt in the training
Once the participants have successfully completed the program, they may be offered employment; a pre-apprenticeship; or a chef apprenticeship.
This program is FREE for jobseekers, youth (under 25) and concession students.
