The Sharpthorne Organic Café provides the setting for the catering workshop at Pericles.

Students learn important skills that are not only essential in the Café environment, but also in their home life.

Training is provided in the following areas:

  • Food preparation (cakes, light lunches etc)
  • Professional coffee making
  • Food Safety and Hygiene
  • Customer care (waitressing, using the till)
  • Health and Safety

Our students are fully integrated into Café life; each one is a valued member of our team.

Each student has a tailored learning plan that enables them to learn in their own way and at their own pace ensuring that they achieve their highest potential.

These skills are used and practiced in a real working environment, giving the students opportunities to progress in ways that may not be so easy to find elsewhere.

Our students are proud of what they achieve in the Café and we are glad to help them achieve their goals
