These are initial vocational training courses that provide a pathway to accredited training and/or employment. These courses are delivered with Victorian Goverment funding to those who are eligible.

The Café operates every Friday during school terms with morning teas being served from 10.30am followed by lunch, with the Café closing around 1.30pm. Fare includes items such as toasted sandwiches, light hot meals, cakes, biscuits and of course coffee and tea.

The Café provides the opportunity for people with a disability to gain basic hospitality skills including food preparation and front of house service. In addition the Café provides a pathway for the participants to further study, volunteer or paid work.

Participants learn about food planning, preparation, cooking, hygiene and customer service. A qualified trainer in hospitality will provide all necessary basic theory & practical training for students to assist in running a community café.

Let's Cook provides cooking classes to enhance independent living for participants with a disability and/or ABI. The program utilises pictures and simple instructions to enable particiapnts to confidentially cook at home. Participants work alongside a chef to prepare a meal each week which they can eat for lunch. Funded by Learn Local, a government agency facilitating training in your local community.
