The AACE (Accelerated Aboriginal Cooks of Excellence) Program has taken out the award for the Best Training Award at the Hospitality NT Aristocrat Technologies Awards for Excellence.
AACE is a collaboration between Saltbush Social Enterprises and the Karen Sheldon Group and is an industry training and employment initiative that has enabled ten local Aboriginal apprentices to launch their cooking careers.
It has been a long-held dream of our Managing Director, Karen Sheldon AM. Since the 1980’s, Karen has trained more than 65 apprentice chefs on-the-job in her multi-award-winning Dolly Pot Inn Restaurant in Tennant Creek but the lack of local Aboriginal apprentices who completed the full apprenticeship was always a disappointment to her.
Congratulations to the AACE Apprentices who have now completed their Certificate III in Commercial Cookery! A special shout out to AACE Mentor, Alan Hickey, and AACE Trainer, Stephen Bognar for all the hard work they have put into delivering the training.
The trophy will be on display at Speaker’s Corner Cafe at Parliament House.
