Glasshouse Coffee Shop

The Coffee shop provides the central daily meeting place where staff, students and visitors can come and relax for drinks, lunch and home baked cakes in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Students get involved in the whole range of tasks such as food preparation, cooking, making drinks, serving at the counter, handling money and clearing up. Our OCN accreditation provides for all levels of ability and each module involves eight hours a week and runs for six weeks. Central to our work, all students start with safety, health and hygiene in the kitchen and learn how to use and maintain the tools. Other essential tasks include chopping, peeling and grating and those who are able will be able to cook and serve our customers.

The Coffee Shop provides good quality vegetarian meals using organic foods and soup and rolls, pizza, pasta and salads appear on the menu. Students will learn how to use the ovens and hobs as well as our coffee machine and the till. It is essential therefore that the ability to serve our customers politely and with good humour is central to our training course. Some students have also taken NVQ’s in catering and we are very fortunate to have a visiting tutor from Stourbridge College to take classes with the students.

We also provide refreshments for the social and cultural events and Open days that are held at the Glasshouse. This also provides students with yet another forum for interaction with the public that has included the local mayor and MP. All of these activities provide each young person an opportunity to develop a whole range of skills that in turn helps to build up their confidence.

Working in the Organic shop involves accepting and checking deliveries, pricing, stock rotation and restocking, reordering, serving customers and handling money.

The Coffee Shop is open Monday to Saturday 10 am to 4 pm.
