Photo: BOBBIE NICHOLLS By BOBBIE NICHOLLS When Rangitikei Club catering manager Raylene Wright was approached by the Hospitality Standards Association about finding new apprentice cooks, she immedi- ately suggested two of her young kitchen staff. Discussions were held with cook Mike Wright, and the two teenagers, Gemma Rossiter, 19, and Jesse Andersen, 17, were excited about the opportunity to gain qualifications while working on the job. They had already investigated enrolling at UCOL's hospitality course, but this would have meant attending full-time with- out the opportunity to work during the day. Doing an apprenticeship means they are receiving on-the-job training, and being paid while they learn. The programme includes a series of workshops which are held in Auck- land. The programme runs for 18 months. Upon successful completion, graduates will receive the National Certificate in Hospitality: Cook- ery, Level 3. Jesse and Gemma attended their first work- shop last November and were amazed at what they learnt during the short time they were there. It was a bit like MasterChef classes,'' Gemma said. We learnt to make sauces and stocks from scratch. There was no instant stock powder allowed.'' They have even started teaching us old hands a thing or two,'' Mr Wright said. It's a different world from the way we learnt our trade.'' Jesse and Gemma learn everything, even making a sandwich properly, and Mr Wright said Gemma's sandwiches with her own mayonnaise are beautifully presented and delicious. They are learning that presentation is vital,'' he said. An external co-ordinator will support and check the apprentices' progress, visiting the workplace at least once a quarter to talk to the apprentices and their employer, and to ensure they are on track with their training. Rangitikei Club manager Vicki Perry said in the six months she has been in the position, she has been looking at upskilling the staff and assisting them to gain qualifications. We have a lot of untapped talent among our hospitality staff who really care about their jobs, but could go further with the right train- ing. And getting more staff training means they are doing good for themselves, but also doing hospitality' which is what the club is all about. The club's adviser, Diane McKellar, suggested the apprenticeship for the young cooks and this is just the start for the club staff.''
