As you are aware that as a part of training program requirement certain qualification has workplace training component. Sometimes it is hard for student to find the work placement by their own. Sometimes they may be employed in the industry but does not meet all the requirement stipulated under the training package. For example: Certificate III in Commercial Cookery. Training package clearly state that the one of the Unit – Work effectively as a cook (SITHCCC020) needs to be completed either at the simulated workplace or the real workplace and satisfy the assessment requirements of preparing, cooking, and presenting menu items for a minimum of 48 complete food service periods that cover:breakfast, dinner,lunch, and special function. The fact is many students if employed are employed in ethnic restaurant where they only offer either dinner or lunch and dinner. Restaurant does not offer all 3-service period. Do they really meet the unit of competency requirements? Answer is NO. Are they competent to work in any commercial restaurant? Answer is NO. That means you as a training provider not meeting the regulatory requirement as well as ethically you have not allowed student to gain the real work experience without which you are certifying this student as qualified cook/chef by offering qualification. Don’t become the victim of regulatory body.
