Work-ready skills for hospitality jobs


The Mornington Peninsula has hundreds of wonderful restaurants and cafes that become increasingly busy between now and Easter.  During this period the hospitality sector is looking to hire staff, so be work-ready by completing a one-day course in Food Handlers and Responsible Service of Alcohol with Nepean Industry Edge Training.

NIET’s one-day course allows students to gain skills and knowledge in how to safely handle food to prevent contamination and also the requirements of serving alcohol in a responsible manner.  Upon successful completion you can apply for jobs within cafes and restaurants and earn some income over the busy summer period on the Peninsula.

NIET CEO Sharyn Bellingham recently completed the course and is now more aware of the safety issues around handling food.  “I was amazed at how easy it can be for people to become ill as a result of poor food handling,” Sharyn said. “The course has some great insights and provides students and the general public with increased skills.”

NIET student Maddie Cook found the course beneficial and straightforward. “It gave me good skills to use in applying for jobs,” Maddie said. “I would like to work in aged care and food safety is really important, so this course has helped a great deal.”

NIET trainers enjoy seeing students blossom after completing the course. The students come in feeling a little overwhelmed, but at the end of the day their confidence has grown, they have a better understanding of food safety and they have gained new skills that can be used to find employment.
