Metro Assist launches new hospitality training facilities at Pratten Park

On Saturday I will be speaking at the launch of the new hospitality training facilities at Pratten Park Community Sports and Bowling Club with Metro Assist.

The new facilities were purpose built to help enable new migrants and refugees in Australia to become job ready.

Trainees will learn food handling and preparation skills as well as having access to barista courses and accreditation in Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA).

A café will operate within the club as a catering service to local businesses and events, with revenue from sales to be reinvested in club operations.

The funding for this project came from the 2015 Stronger Communities Program grants when the club was still in my electorate of Grayndler.

Congratulations to Gordon Latham from Pratten Park and Lou Bacchiella from Metro Assist.
