TAFE provides cooking tips to rehab clients

Central Regional TAFE (CRTAFE) hosted a commercial cookery workshop at the Goldfields Rehabilitation Services Centre (GRSC) on Friday 2 November as part of a plan to assist clients when leaving the centre.

Andrew May – CRTAFE Hospitality Lecturer together with first year Commercial Cookery Apprentice Sharli Landers demonstrated to GRSC clients the importance of having staples in your kitchen and the variety of meals which can be prepared using the same ingredients.

Operations Coordinator Sarsha Lander said it was great that CRTAFE was able to offer the time and talents of their staff and students to educate GRSC clients about cost effective meal planning.

“We like to have local organisations come to the centre on a regular basis so that our clients are aware of the variety of services available in our community” Ms Lander said.

“This workshop will assist clients who are transitioning back into the community as they will need to plan cost effective meals and stay within a budget”.

CRTAFE Managing Director Bill Swetman said CRTAFE was happy to provide the  workshop and is always excited to support other local organisations.

“We are happy to be able to participate in this fantastic initiative which not only allows us to work with other local organisations but also provides opportunities for our students to put into practice what they have learnt during their training at TAFE” Mr Swetman said.

“The GRSC clients were able to learn some valuable life skills whilst also getting a glimpse into what commercial cookery is about” he said.

“Our Kalgoorlie Campus offers practical training in Hospitality, Commercial Cookery and Kitchen Operations, which are all great options for anyone wanting to enter the industry” he said.
