The HEAT (Hospitality Employment & Training) program, with Guy Grossi as its patron, is an innovative and practical hospitality re-engagement program.
HEAT supports young people to gain an accredited training qualification in hospitality, whilst preparing for the world of work or further education.
HEAT is delivered over six months, providing a supportive environment for young people addressing long term barriers through engaging education and wellbeing supports.
Young people will complete the program with increased confidence, self-esteem, solid employability skills and a strong vocational pathway.
The six month program is made up of three elements:
Order Up is delivered for one term, two days per week on an adjusted schedule. The focus is on empowering you to take a meaningful step towards a career in hospitality.
It assists you to strengthen personal effectiveness, develop a career plan and prepare for accredited training or employment. Furthermore, Order Up supports you to break down barriers to education and training, including punctuality, coping strategies and communication skills.
