Learning for Earning

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DgQAvJKarFM&feature=youtu.be The above link takes you to a video clip about Unley's involvement in this programme. This programme involves local businesses, in the hospitality industry, training young people in the art of coffee making and service. These young people are then more qualified to win real jobs as it boosts both skills and confidence. Students that I work with choose to participate for what is a week off school to learn the new skills. Better than work experience but supported by it. Some students also take the time to have this accredited as a subject at toward their SACE certificate. Well done Unley for enabling this programme in our local high schools.
