“Putting The Pieces Together” In this final stage, students will merge the classroom instruction and apprenticeship. Students will begin to prepare for the really big step, the job search:

  • Completion of the food handler’s permit.
  • Completion of the professional portfolio.
  • Mock interviews.
  • Meeting with actual employers.
  • Graduation ceremony.

Upon completion of Stage Three, students will work with an Employment Specialist driving their job search and receive on-going support such as job coaching and retention.
