This semester course is designed to get you ‘work ready’ for employment when you leave school. 

A combination of practical and theory classes either in the café or the kitchen. 

Our Barista skills course will provide you with the know-how to set you on the path to becoming a coffee expert, and provide you with useful skills for future careers from working in a café on weekends to being a barista full time. This programme gives students an appreciation of coffee. It provides information on the history and evolution of coffee and espresso technology for today's café society. 

A kitchen experience will be provided to equip boys with cooking skills to prepare healthy and nutritious café style meals, authentic wood fire grilling, and basic food safety practices. 

Opportunities to be involved in our onsite cafe and offsite work experience will be offered.

All successful graduates will receive a level 3 NZQA Barista qualification and certificate for their CV.

McDonalds work experience placement.

McDonald’s partnership - NZ Education Gazette

The school has developed a partnership with a local McDonald’s branch where, for four days each week, two boys have the opportunity to completely manage one of the coffee machines, serving both the restaurant and drive-through customers.

They do induction and some training, but because of the experience they have here at school, they’re able to confidently manage the barista machine there at McDonald’s.”

The boys are then on a five-week placement and we’re finding that they’re mostly getting job offers before the five weeks are up.”
