Becoming a Barista

Lewisham Homes have partnered with Plot Coffee, a local coffee business and training provider, to offer local residents the chance to gain new skills and avenues into employment in an exciting, creative and expansive industry.

Becoming a Barista workshop is a three-day course that teaches participants the practical skills to become excellent baristas in a workplace environment and to confidently serve the general public. With a mix of practical workshop learning (making the perfect espresso, tasting different coffees, steaming and texturing milk), visits to coffee shops and roasteries, and introductions to local business owners. One of the days is focused around another branch of the industry, where we take the students on a tour of a coffee roaster. This will mean travelling to another location locally. We will support this with public transport.  Including in all of this they also offer a food and hygiene course that can be completed online by the student. On completion of the course the participants will have obtained the skills and knowledge necessary to work successfully within the industry and discover the exciting opportunities it has to offer.

This training is for any Lewisham Homes residents who truly needs to learn a new skill and gain employment.
