The first hospitality training course by Walan Miya has been well received with all participants receiving job offers. Walan Miya director Lucas Scarpin said he was pleased with the success so far. "Whilst we only had four participants in our first course, a number of the local cafés attended and all four participants have been offered work," Mr Scarpin said. The course ran at the vacant Double Shot Cafe in Merimbula where participants were able to train in a real work environment. Jared Auer and Victoria Westenfelder were on the course and are both university students who were hoping to get work during the break and came away with jobs. Mr Scarpin thanked local businesses that supported the courses so far. "We are very proud of the effort the participants put in and to see them receive job opportunities is an outstanding result. We still have a number of places for January for anyone who is interested in upskilling their hospitality skills. We have a number of employers who have expressed their need for workers, and these courses can help connect prospective workers with prospective employers," Mr Scarpin said.
