Taste of the future for students
YEAR 10 Assumption College student Nicole Roser will get a taste of her future career this week as she undergoes work experience at Elle's Coffee Lounge.
“I have always had an interest in hospitality but what I enjoy the most is the cooking and serving,” the 15-year-old said.
“I have been learning to make different food and learning how to operate all of the machinery.
“So far, my work has given me an idea of what the future holds.”
Many of the local businesses in Warwick and beyond participate in teaching young students their trade and give them a taste of full time work, with 31 taking in an Assumption College student this week.
Assumption College careers counsellor and teacher Jan Hoffman said work experience was a great way of giving students some on-the-job training.
“I think it is a good idea because it can concern what the students think of their future careers,” she said.
“It can alter their choice of the career and can also create job opportunities.”
