UFV, VCC, Stó:lō Nation deliver culinary pre-apprenticeship program for Indigenous learners 

March 25, 2020

The University of the Fraser Valley, Vancouver Community College, and the Stó:lō Nation are partnering to deliver the Stó:lō Aboriginal Skills and Employment Training (SASET) Culinary Arts program. The initiative, funded by the Government of British Columbia, is a 12-week pre-trades training program delivered at VCC and UFV. The program will provide students with first aid training, FoodSafe and SuperHost certificates, and a work practicum placement. “A career in the culinary arts is a lifelong endeavour where learning never stops and job satisfaction happens every day,” said UFV Instructor Chris Monkman. “We’re thankful the Province recognizes the need for partnerships like this, as well as the need for state-of-the-art training equipment and spaces. This partnership really is a win-win.”    NationTalk     (BC)
