A partnership with three organizations and St. Clair College will see 15 students with developmental disabilities have an opportunity to obtain culinary skills that will help them in their search for employment.
The program was first proposed by Christian Horizons from Community Living Essex County and Community Living Windsor a few months ago.
“St. Clair College is pleased to support this unique partnership as we all share the same philosophy of access to education for all students,” says Seguin. “The expertise we have in our culinary program will provide a high level of skills training for the students and give them the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment,” said Ron Seguin, Vice President International Relations, Training and Campus Development.
The course curriculum includes things such as safety practices in the kitchen, identification of various culinary equipment, correct handling of kitchen utensils, how to work as part of a team and more. The five day course starts at 9:30am each day and concludes at 3:30pm. Students will also learn how to make a variety of foods from soup and salads to breakfast cookery and dessert.
The students each will receive a certificate of participation when the course is completed.
