Bettr Holistic Training Programme

At the core of Bettr Barista is our Social Programmes for marginalised women and at-risk youth. We adopt a whole-person approach to personal development, impacting every individual in a caring, compassionate and meaningful way.

The Bettr Holistic Training Programme is a 4-month, full-time, work & study programme for at-risk women and youth aged 16-50 providing mental, emotional and physical training to help participants scale up in a holistic manner with the skills to deal with life’s challenges and kickstart careers in the Specialty Coffee Industry.

Applications to join the programme are by referral only from an SSO, SSA or organisation with IPC Status.

Making a good cup of coffee is more than just pressing a button. It takes skill, lots of practice for consistency and a little flair. Students in our Programme learn the art and science of making that perfect cup, in a nurturing environment that encourages interaction and mutual exchange with people from all walks of life, and supports their ongoing development and growth.

We go beyond work skills, adopting a whole-person approach that combines professional coffee education with life and emotional management skills, and physical training:

  1. Mental: Professional coffee education, paid internship at our partnering specialty cafes, as well as opportunities for international certifications through continued education at Bettr Barista Coffee Academy.

  2. Emotional: Emotional empowerment and coping/life management skills to help with conflict management, confidence building and resilience.

  3. Physical: Multi-dimension physical training including self-defence, yoga, outrigger canoeing and rock climbing to encourage socialisation, teamwork and foster camaraderie.

 
 

24 intakes of the HT programme have been delivered, with thousands of hours of training delivered and work hours provided.
