COSTA Coffee joined forces with Combe Pafford School, as part of their commitment to community projects, by providing Barista training to a group of students on the school's Ready to Work programme.

This year has seen the start of a new Sixth form at Combe Pafford School where the focus, alongside gaining qualifications, is to gain sustainable paid employment.

The students that teamed up with Costa are undertaking a Level 1 NVQ in customer service.

The course in Barista skills was seen as a way of helping the students gain important customer service experience, as well as a skill that could lead to employment in the future.
