National Apprenticeship Week starts next week – so lets get it off to a ‘tasty’ start.
This is Jenssen, one of our Supported Interns with the Furness “Work & Learn” Team. Here you can see the proud moment Jenssen had his first day in the Kitchen at The Roundhouse Hub Cafe in Barrow. The newly reopened Roundhouse has undergone an amazing renovation and the kitchen has just been completed as part of its modernisation. As soon as the transformation was complete, Jenssen was keen to get stuck in and start baking cakes and prepping up trays of Bacon, ready for the influx of customer orders, now that the new menu was proudly being displayed throughout the cafe in recognition of the kitchen completion.
R2W Employmet Advisor, Grant Huck tells us more: “Jenssen joined the Work & Learn team in September 2019 and was extremely lucky to secure his supported internship at the Roundhouse Hub & Cafe working under the professional supervision of the owners Elaine and Matt, who kindly gave Jenssen his lucky break. Jenssen comes from a family of bakers and chef’s and it was his dream to follow in their footsteps, so it has been a thoroughly rewarding experience for the R2W employees, supporting Jenssen on his journey so far. While the kitchen was a work in progress, Jenssen had the opportunity to master front of house skills and so he is fast becoming a great all-rounder in the cafe and a valuable member of the team. The long term objective is hopefully for Jenssen to secure either an apprenticeship or maybe even part/full time work at the Roundhouse, depending on how well Jenssen performs. So far, Jenssen is doing very well, he is enjoying his internship tremendously and learning new skills everyday. We are hopeful that Jenssen will continue to be successful in this role. Hopefully it won’t be too long before he really is bringing home the bacon and achieving the employment and independence he is working hard to secure.”
