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.”
