Happy new year!

John HartThe start of 2016 has been incredibly satisfying, given the work that the Association has been doing with Noma.

The project is a collaboration between the Association and Noma to manage an internship program at the Noma pop-up, and it was the brain-child of John Fink from Quay (thanks John!). His vision was for the Association to help Noma provide an opportunity for some young Australians to work with ‘the best restaurant in the world’, to hone their skills and be able to use those skills to add to our local industry.

The internship is also an example of the creativity of our industry. With the support of the NSW government Smart and Skilled program, the Association was able to bring the opportunity to life and will be able to issue national qualifications to the participants as well. The Association’s Registered Training Organisation (RTO) can support learning in many different ways. The internship is an example, where the training has been customised to meet the restaurant’s and interns’ needs. There are also a range of apprenticeship offerings, supported on-the-job cookery apprenticeships, and the new waiting apprenticeship. Don’t hesitate to contact our training department if there are training needs that you think we can assist you with. The Association has a network of partner RTOs, and can also deliver a range of programs on and off the job.

Here’s to a great year for the industry and the Association. Happy 2016!
