PAYCE Headquarters Sydney:

PAYCE - Congratulations to the First Washington Park 'Kickstart Youth Café' Graduate Students.

Kickstart Youth Cafe is aimed at training local youths with on-the-job experience in the hospitality field have seen the first two trainees successfully complete their courses. Kickstart Youth Cafe is a PAYCE initiative at Riverwood's residential precinct in Washington Park.

It is hoped that the successful completion of the Hospitality Course will open future employment opportunities for graduates in the Hospitality industry.

The RSA (Responsible Serving of Alcohol) and the RCG (Responsible Conduct of Gambling) certificates are essential to work in venues that sell or serve alcohol and have gambling facilities on site. The Kickstart Courses comprehensively cover the Hospitality industry, including the all important RSA (Responsible Serving of Alcohol) and the RCG (Responsible Conduct of Gambling) certificates, remarked Mr Brian Boyd.

Dominic Sullivan at the graduation ceremony, offers congratulates to students.

Mr Sullivan congratulated Samantha and Anthony saying, all their hard work and dedication to the job had paid off, with their new skills acquired, new job opportunities in the workforce will open to them.

After successfully completing their RSA and RCG training courses along with a barista course at the Australian Barista School, the trainees received some mentoring with CV writing to assist with job applications for work opportunities outside the café.

At a graduation ceremony in PAYCE headquarters, PAYCE General Manager, Dominic Sullivan presented Samantha Terepai and Anthony Box with their Certificate 111 in Hospitality Operations.

"Canterbury City Council Mayor, Brian Robson and I had the pleasure of visiting the café and received first-class service and most importantly, an excellent coffee," he said.

PAYCE incentives bring community support to a small business in local area.

The Certificate 111 Kickstart Youth Cafe Hospitality course is quite comprehensive in scope and covers a full suite of skills required to work in the hospitality industry. Participants learn everything from setting tables, to taking orders, making coffee, serving food and drinks and processing bills.

Mr Sullivan said the ongoing construction activity on PAYCE projects at Washington Park and the influx of new residents acted as a catalyst for the training initiative. The café's clientele includes construction workers, as well as local residents and tenants of Washington Park.

"It meant a not-for-profit business offering fresh food and coffee was viable in the grounds of Washington Park and presented an opportunity to provide a great training ground for local youths who aspire to a career in the various fields of hospitality.

Two other local youths were recently selected for the training course and are currently receiving on-the-job training and experience at the cafe, with a view to graduating later in the year.

Brian Boyd : Local workers support hospitality trainees ...

Delighted to see the café project working successfully, PAYCE Managing Director, Brian Boyd said "My congratulations to both Samantha and Anthony on the successful completion of their courses and I wish them well in the future".
"I also want to thank the café's chef, Matthew Peek for the great job he did in mentoring his trainees and imparting his knowledge to them.

"With the support of local construction workers and local residents through their patronage, the café has been able to open all weekdays and give the trainees the experience and training they needed to achieve their goals.
"Being a not-for-profit enterprise meant more time could be spent with the trainees than would have been the case with a busy commercial business," he said.

"Both graduates now have the necessary range of skills and credentials on board to give them the edge when competing for employment in the hospitality industry," Brian Boyd said.
