At ELTHAM, we strive to ensure that all our young people are world-ready. A crucial element to this is equipping them with the life skills they need to graduate.
ELTHAM owns and operates a Hospitality Training Centre and fully-functional winery, café and restaurant called Swipers Gully.
Students in Years 8 and 9 operate the College Coffee Shop within the restaurant, with particular focus on Year 9 students exploring employment and work experience opportunities.
The Centre also allows Years 10, 11 and 12 students to participate in a number of VET and VCE options as well as Vocational certificates – with most of our young people participating in at least one.
Students use their skills to work in the industry, with graduates going on to work at internationally acclaimed restaurants.
** Important message to our valued patrons **
