Who is the Service For?

Café Leep works with adults with learning disabilities to help them gain new skills.

Café Leep is a registered training centre with Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance, an Accredited Awarding Organisation regulated in England by the Office of the Qualifications and Examinations Regulator (Ofqual).

Our trainees learn about food hygiene, cooking, serving, taking orders and stock rotation.

At the conclusion of the course trainees will be supported to find employment within the catering industry through joint working with DS Workfit and the DWP.

We are looking for businesses who need catering staff to support our trainees in work placements. By helping them out, you are giving our trainees good experience to help them into paid work.
