Employment Skills

In this section

Our employment skills project gives young people the opportunity to develop workplace skills and develop their confidence in the practical setting of our drop-in cafe.

The programme is funded by St James’s Place Foundation and involves young people undertaking a tailored programme for up to 12 weeks, covering the following:

  • Completing a food hygiene certificate
  • Budgeting
  • Buying food
  • Food preparation and storage
  • Using social media to advertise the cafe
  • Cooking and preparing meals
  • Customer service and customer feedback
  • CV writing

Everyone taking part in the programme receives a certificate setting out the skills they have learned as well as a food hygiene certificate.

Although the programme is based around our drop-in cafe, participants learn general skills which helps develop confidence and provides practical experience to include on their CV and in job applications.”
