REDI.E has delivered Hospitality training to students from the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS), who will be operating a mobile coffee cart in rural communities.
One of the RFDS divisions purchased the coffee cart, with plans to take it throughout regional and rural New South Wales, to bring great coffee to areas that may not have such facilities.
The RFDS approached REDI.E to train the operators so they could deliver the highest standard of service.
The group, which was a mix of staff and mental health clients, completed a Statement of Attainment in Hospitality. They received Food Safety Supervisor certification and accredited Barista training.
Part of the training also involved engaging with their mental health clients, allowing them to learn new skills. The training was contextualised to meet the needs of all learners, and extra mentoring support was given to the RFDS mental health clients.
REDI.E Training Coordinator Max Rabbett facilitated the training. He said all the students enjoyed learning and gave great feedback for the course.
“I really enjoyed working with all the students,” said Max.
“It was a great experience for me and I look forward to working with the RFDS again in the future.”
