Would You Like Some Upskilling With Your Coffee Sir?

Local students are setting out to provide delicious BBQ food and coffee to the community via a mobile food and beverage cart through a new incentive designed to take the training conversation to the people of the Gold Coast. 

The Education Coffee and BBQ Cart will create a relaxed social environment allowing employers, current students, potential clients, prospective students and community members to connect over coffee and food while highlighting the advantages of upskilling to enhance employability and canvas work placement opportunities for TAFE students. At the same time hospitality and event students will gain workplace learning experience by developing technical and employer valued soft skills while preparing and serving food and coffee from the cart.
