YOUNG adults with disabilities are on the path to employment thanks to Wallara.
The disability support service last month celebrated two groups of clients achieving new skills.
Wallara training manager Ellen Burns said one group undertook non-accredited hospitality training internally with Wallara staff and a non-accredited barista course with an independent provider.
Group two complete an accredited barista course at a city venue and an accredited food handling course with a local provider as well as participating in the staff-run hospitality course.
“We now envisage both groups progressing to the next stage – group one to undertake the accredited training and group two sourcing external work experience to enhance their skills and exposure to the hospitality industry,” Ms Burns said.
“Both groups participated in external industry visits getting an idea of the skills required to work in the sector, which is ultimately what they would like to eventually achieve.”
