'Back to Basics' and Certificate 1 in Hospitality courses



The Walkabout Chef's 'Back to Basics' nutrition cookery program in Top End communities is undertaken by Steve Sunk in conjunction with Charles Darwin University and with support from the Fred Hollows Foundation. This course is aimed at adolescent students and mothers and seeks to enhance their knowledge in hygienic and nutritious cooking. Students are selected and invited from this course to enter Certificate 1 in Hospitality (cooking) which is usually undertaken in their home communities. The Charles Darwin University funds the 'Back to Basics' and Certificate 1 in Hospitality courses with The Foundation providing incentives for commitment and high achievement by participants through five $1000 awards ($500 for tools and uniforms and $500 cash) to encourage students to undertake Certificate 2 in Hospitality.
