This week I attended another Activities Advisory Committee meeting on behalf of the SSU. Once again I am astounded by this committee trying to be some kind of legitimate board with talk of spending money on t-shirts etc. I can’t believe the SSAA would think this is at all necessary. Luckily I was able to talk the group out of wanting to waste money on t-shirts as we really are just a discussion group.
I note that it feels as though the group is for SSAA to put forward some ideas and that is what happens as long as the group isn’t too against it. I’m really not sure that this group is at all necessary.
James and I had a meeting with some Croydon staff this week to talk about offering training at Croydon for Barista and Hospitality courses. I’m really excited to see that barista training would be pretty easy to implement, given that our Café manager Debbie is a qualified trainer and is keen to do this. With the help of the existing enrolment system for short courses at Croydon, we are now working to set up Barista training from our Croydon campus with the possibility of extending this service in the future. A great success!
