Hospitality Training is No Piece of Cake! Hospitality Industry Trainees Wellbeing and Alcohol and Drug Use: First Years’ Experiences and Responses

This report presents findings from a series of focus groups undertaken with 2nd year commercial cookery apprentices and interviews with key TAFE NSW and industry informants. The report identifies that employment in the commercial cookery sector of the hospitality industry exposes young new entrants to high levels of risky drinking, drug use, verbal abuse and bullying. These findings have important implications for intervention strategies to improve the wellbeing of first year trainees. Such strategies may also improve first year trainee retention rates.
