Assessment Day prepares learners with hospitality skills

Learners in the Preparation for Work and Life Department attended the Supported Internship Assessment day, Monday 1 April.

Learners had to carry out four work-based tasks typical to applying for a job and working in a coffee shop or restaurant. Tasks included filling in an application form, envelope stuffing, setting a table for a meal, taking orders and inputting the order information into a spreadsheet. Once learners finished their tasks they were interviewed by the department’s Supported Internship Coordinator.

The Supported Internship Programme at SGS provides learners with additional needs in gaining long term work experience. They are supported by a Job Coach within their work placement and attend college once a week. The programme improves the learner’s chance of paid employment in the future and enables them to become more independent within the world of work.

Kelly Spicer, Supported Internship Coordinator, said:

“All students did extremely well, acted professional, and took this process very seriously. Well done to all that participated.”
