Training in a company – Latvia
The first work experience in a company
Latvian SN students continue their training successfully, and on 27th January they had an opportunity to test their waiters’ skills in a local cafe.
This was a challenge to do the tasks not in the usual environment but in other rooms, with not-known equipment and to cooperate with people they didn’t work together before.
They had to lay the tables, to prepare and serve up the dishes. To make this work experience out of the class more emotionally comfortable for them, the first clients were their teachers Gunta Jēkabsone and Dace Kursīte. They helped to overcome the initial stress and anxiety.
This training in a real work environment was possible because of successful cooperation and the intensive informative activities addressed to local and regional catering service companies.
