Aly and Alecia are two young women who have recently found success in new careers as bakery trainees at PAK’nSAVE Riccarton. The pair completed a 12-week pre-trade bakery course in New Zealand at Skills4Work, which equipped them with the foundational skills and knowledge they needed to pursue a career in baking.
Aly was working as a kitchen hand for a Thai restaurant when she decided to pursue a career in baking. She had always been interested in baking, and she was drawn to the idea of a career that would allow her to be creative and use her hands. Alecia was also looking for a new career, and she was referred to the pre-trade bakery course by a friend. She was eager to learn new skills and gain experience in the baking industry.
The pre-trade bakery course at Skills4Work provided Aly and Alecia with the foundational skills they needed to succeed in their new careers. They learned how to make a variety of bread, pastries, and cakes, and they also learned about the importance of food safety and sanitation. The course also gave them the opportunity to develop their teamwork and communication skills.
After completing the pre-trade bakery course, Aly and Alecia were both offered work placements at PAK’nSAVE Riccarton. They are now working full-time in the bakery department, and they are both enjoying their new careers. They are learning new skills every day, and they are also gaining valuable experience in the baking industry.
Aly and Alecia are grateful for the opportunities that have opened up for them through the pre-trade bakery course at Skills4Work and the work programme at PAK’nSAVE Riccarton. They are both excited to continue their careers in baking, and they are confident that they have the skills and knowledge they need to succeed.
