On Friday 1 February and Tuesday 5 February, students from mostly Year 11 attended Barista Training at the Brisbane Coffee School in Fortitude Valley. In order to attend this training, students had to be enrolled in either Certificate II in Skills for Work & Vocational Pathways or Certificate II in Business or Certificate III in Business.
Within these certificates, students are required to demonstrate their ability to serve customers and work well with others in the workplace. So that the students can work a rostered shift at Revive Cafe (within the College grounds), they have this opportunity to gain professional training in learning how to make a variety of coffee drinks.
The students appreciated and enjoyed this experience as it was a full day of training, away from their usual school classes.
