Not-for-profit community organisation Kingston East Neighbourhood Group (KENG) is running their first Certificate II in Hospitality from their new premises at Tudor Park, Loganholme, commencing in October 2022.
The Certificate II in Hospitality marks a milestone for KENG as the first SQW training program to be delivered from their new premises at Tudor Park, Loganholme.
It’s currently all hands-on deck preparing the facilities, after they were damaged by the floods earlier in the year.
“We weren’t even sure we would be able to get into our own kitchen to deliver the training”, SQW Community Liaison Officer Louise Poole said.
“Unfortunately, the flood affected the Tudor Park facilities, and we lost a lot of equipment that we had on site. KENG were due to open their second facilities at Tudor Park earlier in the year, but it all had to be put on hold until we got the all clear that they were safe to use.
“Luckily, Logan City Council handed the keys over to us last week and now we are go, go, go, busily getting ready to run the Certificate II in Hospitality from the Tudor Park kitchen this October.
“We don’t have an official date set for opening the Tudor Park site to the general community yet, so our students for the course will be getting a sneak peek. But when we do officially open, we can celebrate with a coffee!”
KENG are partnering with Axiom College to deliver the Certificate II in Hospitality (SIT20316) this October. The program is funded by the Skilling Queenslanders for Work initiative and eligible students’ study at no cost.
Training and qualifications delivered as part of the course include Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA), Barista Training, First Aid and Food Safety and Preparation.
