About this hub
Trainees produce hot drinks directly from a commercial coffee machine as well as selling a variety of light snacks.
The Book Rest Cafes are inspiring places of work that give practical bite-sized training in customer service.
Alongside customer service and coffee making skills, we support trainees to learn all aspects of hospitality including till training, ordering of stock, money-handling experience and health & safety essentials.
The staff team offer hands-on training, advice on reaching goals and gaining an insight into every aspect of working in a café. The café enables trainees to develop the customer service skills that could lead to paid employment in their local area.
