The Women’s Business: Second Chance hub (WBSC) A group of 8 aspirants has recently completed Barista training at the Real Futures Women’s Business: Second Chance (WBSC)hub in Rooty Hill. The course was a great success for the Western Sydney women who are now equipped with the skills required to work as cafe Baristas. Trainer Deanna Lea commented that she thought it would be difficult for participants to not burn the milk, but was impressed that women picked it up after the first couple of rounds. Highlights included learning how to create coffee art in the shape of a love heart when pouring the milk. Congratulations to everyone involved.
“The lovely Real Futures team assisted me in so many ways with getting my new role as an Aboriginal Aged Care worker. I found out about the position by attending a Real Futures – Mob Day where I got to meet employers and other colleagues firsthand. This made a big difference as it felt welcoming and made the interview process more relaxed. Real Futures assisted me with getting ready for work ensuring I had everything the employers needed and preparing me to be Job Ready. I am very thankful to the Real Futures team”. Vicki. A mother of four children Vicki has previously worked in accounting, bookkeeping and has had her own business. After a few life-changing events she felt like taking on a new career path.
