Barossa icon congratulates course participants

Barossa icon Maggie Beer visited TAFE SA’s Barossa Campus on Wednesday to congratulate the participants of a pilot short course. Their new skills and knowledge assisted in learning about providing nutritionally balanced meals for older Australians that are in care.

The ‘Enhancing your cookery skills and nutrition knowledge in aged care’ course was developed by a working group in response to an identified need to provide cooks and caterers with the latest information on nutrition and preparing food for people in aged-care facilities.

The working group comprised of industry experts including Ellis Wilkinson from Hotel Services Management Solutions and high-profile chef Simon Bryant, as well as representatives of the Maggie Beer Foundation, the Institute of Hospitality in HealthCare and TAFE SA.

The short course aims to empower the industry’s current and future workers with the skills and knowledge to make changes that will meet the demands of an aging population. The inaugural three-session course attracted a full enrolment of 15 people from aged care facilities in the Barossa Valley region, Adelaide and even Melbourne.

Mrs Beer joined participants during their final session to discuss what they had learned, distribute Certificates of Completion and gather feedback to guide future course delivery. She said she wanted to increase awareness of the need to provide more nutritious, full flavoured food to people in aged care, but was aware of the lack of focus and training in the sector.

At Tasting Australia in May, Mrs Beer hosted a “Food in Aged Care” think session to garner ideas from industry experts and bring national attention to the issue. “Getting pleasure from food that is full of flavour and nutrition brings about so many benefits, especially in a care environment, That’s why we need to put a spotlight on aged care cookery training and provide the skills, know-how and confidence to cooks to bring about the changes the industry needs" she said.

“This TAFE SA short course is the first step in bringing about those positive changes and I congratulate the participants in wanting to enhance their knowledge and spread the message to others.”

Sydney's ICC wins national infrastructure award





Sydney’s International Convention Centre (ICC Sydney) at Darling Harbour has been named Australia’s best infrastructure project at the Infrastructure Partnerships Australia’s National Infrastructure Awards.

Andrew Constance Minister for Transport and Infrastructure welcomed the award saying the ICC was a jewel in the NSW Government’s infrastructure crown.

“I am extremely proud that this Government has delivered a world class transformation to the Darling Harbour precinct with the stunning International Convention Centre at its heart,” Mr Constance said.

ICC Sydney cements Sydney as a premium choice on the world stage for major events that this nation has never before had the facilities to host.

“The NSW Government remains focused on the delivery of infrastructure that transforms our state and has a positive impact on our economy. The ICC certainly delivers on this.”

The $1.5 billion ICC Sydney was recognised for its design excellence, construction timeline and outstanding financial performance as well as delivering the nation a new and emblematic piece of business events and tourism infrastructure.

The convention centre officially opened in December 2016 and has already hosted over 170 major events including the Fast 4 Tennis Showdown and performances by Keith Urban and Nick Cave. The convention centre is also generating significant international interest with 115 global events confirmed for Sydney over the next few years.
