Grounded is an employability project for ex-offenders, run in partnership with Junction42 at Stenhouse Baptist church. The program is an 8-week barista training course, where clients learn all aspects of coffee machine operation, the crafting of espresso-based drinks to international standards and are guided through some of their first steps into the hospitality industry. After completing the program, our trainees are offered a voluntary placement in a local café to gain more on-the-job experience, with assistance, to move towards employment. Additionally, trainees are also offered the opportunity to achieve an external qualification via the Scottish Barista Academy.
We praise God for the people who have moved through the program and that they have experienced marked increase in their skills, confidence and 100% of our trainees have moved on to voluntary placement and/or employment.
