Since August, a group of 9 pupils have been involved in 'The Larder' course. The course is designed to increase self-esteem and confidence, aspiration, self-reliance, communication skills and enhance employability through building relationships with employers and further education providers in the hospitality sector.
All students completing the course will be awarded the WL employability award at SCQF at minimum level 5. It is also anticipated that each young person will complete an introduction to practical cooking which will prepare them for the Professional Cookery level 4 at West Lothian College. Finally each student will have the opportunity to gain certification in REHIS Elementary Food Hygiene.
Our photograph shows the pupils and the course leaders with the Loaded Potatoes, Macaroni Cheese and Chocolate pizzas that they made on 7th October.
