My client has done cooking classes in the past without the need for a carer, why do they need to have a carer to participate?
Due to this being a kitchen environment The Good Foundation conducts its own skills assessments. All of our assessments are tailored to the individual and based on what is considered necessary to ensure the participant can operate safely in the centre and get the most out of the class. Our program is quite fast paced and the Food Trainer is teaching up to 12 people – they do not have the ability to work one-on-one with participants and support additional needs. The carer may be required to help the individual keep pace with the rest of the class and get the most out of the experience.
Please keep in mind when entering participants into group bookings through the Booking Form that carers take the place of a participant so are required to be included in the 12 places booked.
