On the morning of October 11, OC Connections Enterprises, the local community and commuters passing by were fortunate to have the opportunity to buy their lunch from a “Gourmet Toasties” food van. The van was staffed by several participants from OC Connections who thoroughly enjoyed the work-experience opportunity that this initiative provided.
The food van is a Catalyst Training initiative run by Prioletti Consultants. Prioletti are training partners of OC Connections who specialise in Cross-Cultural Training and provide a range of training products for the Community Services Sector.
The “Gourmet Toasties” food van was set up to support students undertaking Certificate 1 Work Education. This provided students from OC Connections Pathway-to-Employment program with the opportunity to showcase skills learned during the course alongside professionals in the hospitality industry. The day was a great success!
“It was great fun. It was also very busy there were lots of people there and I learned how to make nice sandwiches” Cassie
OC Connections would like to extend a warm thank you to Prioletti Consultants for all their effort in setting this up. We’d also like to thank the students who made us a lovely lunch and wish them all the best with their continued training!
