To get started, the first thing to do is to contact Platform One and arrange a visit. You can also have a 'taster' day at the Café to see if you like it. If you want to start training, they will put a plan together with you. The training aims to meet your needs and help you to get some skills and experience you need to start work. Trainees can choose to attend for one or more days per week.
Trainees can join Platform One Café's training programme and get practical experience and qualifications in catering and hospitality to kick start a career in the catering industry.
