Certificate II in Commercial Cookery

The students in Commercial Cookery are heading into their service periods for breakfast, lunch and dinner to help students complete the “work effectively as a cook” unit. Students are required to complete 12 service periods serving real customers in real-time. Students made appetisers in preparation of fine-tuning their skills.

Chef Brian is very impressed with their dedication and skillset so far and is looking forward to the next few culinary challenges of practical service.

Head Start School-Based Apprenticeships

Congratulations to Brooklyn for beginning a school-based apprenticeship, supported by Head Start!

Brooklyn was introduced to the civil construction industry by a family member and enjoyed it so much that she has now commenced part-time work with the Winslow Group, studying Certificate III in Civil Construction whilst she completes her secondary education. Brooklyn is confidently heading into a traditionally male-dominated industry to learn a skill set that is in high demand. Well done, Brooklyn!


Congratulations to Tyler for beginning his apprenticeship through Head Start as a school-based apprentice!

Tyler undertook Structured Workplace Learning with Piper Plumb, which led to the opportunity for a school-based apprenticeship. Tyler will be studying Certificate III in Plumbing whilst he completes his secondary education, with support from Head Start. Tyler has demonstrated great potential and we are proud of his achievement.

If you’d like to consider an apprenticeship or traineeship whilst completing your secondary education, please contact the Head Start Coordinator Jody Yandle on 0467 209 251.


Responsible Serving of Alcohol Certificate

As the 2023 Year 12s of Koo Wee Rup Secondary College approach the end of their learning experience, it is becoming vital for them to be prepared to develop their independence. On the 11th of July, our Vocational Major classes had the opportunity to complete their RSA (Responsible Serving of Alcohol) by completing the course by EducationisKey. The teacher, Michelle, taught both the morning and afternoon sessions exceptionally well. The VM classes were individually given an information booklet about the responsibility and the handling of alcohol to study carefully throughout the lesson. The students were then handed their RSA test which they promptly completed to their best ability. It is safe to say each Vocational Major student enjoyed half a day at school, and can now provide proper documentation of an RSA. The certificate will be especially valuable for students who want to work in the Hospitality and Entertainment industries.
