Barista Training Skills Workshop Aims to Help Students Find Summer Employment
Mar 14, 2012
The Catering Department at Trinity College Dublin in conjunction with the Students' Union and Lavazza Coffee have run a series of barista training skills workshops for students to assist them in finding summer employment.
Each year a number of students seek employment both in Ireland and abroad within coffee shops or the restaurant industry. To provide students with the necessary skills to help them be more attractive to potential employers the Students' Union and the College’s catering team collaborated to provide barista training for interested students.
Students complete the barista training skills workshop organised by Trinity's Catering Department in conjunction with the Students' Union and Lavazza Coffee.
Students signed up to a full day training course through the Students' Union Facebook page. With only 25 places available the course was quickly over-subscribed. Five workshops were held and each day five students learnt how to make the perfect espresso, the basis of all quality coffee drinks, along with all the necessary skills to make premium quality cappuccinos, lattes and many more. Upon completion, students received a certificate, a coffee information pack and manual and ongoing support from the trainer. This training took place in the Vaults cafe in the Buttery food court and it is hoped that the pilot scheme can be extended to many more skills training sessions before the end of this term and beyond.
