Hospitality Skills Training and Mentoring Program

LGPro Awards for Excellence 2023

The LGPro Awards for Excellence – presented on 25 May 2023 – promote and celebrate the outstanding work being undertaken and delivered by individuals and teams working in Local Government in Victoria.

Brimbank City Council was one of the partnership Councils who won the Innovative Management Initiative category in the 2023 LGPro Awards for Excellence, for the Child Safe E-learn Module Development project along with Glen Eira City Council and Casey City Council.

A group of 22 councils worked in partnership to develop and launch a child safeguarding e-learn module to be used by staff and volunteers in response to the Victorian Child Safe Standards that came into effect on 1 July 2022.

Brimbank City Council led a working group which converted the subject material into an e-learning format that could be applied on multiple learning platforms. Brimbank City Council would like to thank and acknowledge the City of Casey for leading this initiative.

There are now 34 Councils using the Child Safe E-learn Module to conduct internal child safe training.

At the same Awards, Brimbank also received a High Commendation in the Service Delivery Initiative category for Brimbank Neighbourhood House Unit’s program, Hospitality Skills Training and Mentoring Program.

The Hospitality Skills Training and Mentoring program was developed as a practical response to the significant workforce and skills shortages being experienced in this area and unemployment in Brimbank.

Participants received training and certificates in barista, food handling and Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA). All participants successfully completed the course and expressed greater confidence about getting a job as a result of gaining work-ready skills as part of the course.
