My First Job Trainees Succeeds through Midterm Evaluation

After several weeks of preparation, the first My First Job Assistant Chef Program of 2021 for women in agricultural and pastoral areas in Qinghai Province officially opened in May 1. Thirty-one trainees were selected from more than 70 women to participate in the training. Most of them are single mothers and unmarried women with limited educational background. They expect to improve their families’ living conditions by mastering a skill to help them find a stable source of income.

With the support and cooperation of teachers and local coordinators, the training has been going smoothly. Each of the women has her own learning style and pace, but everyone strives to improve each day. After one and a half months of training and practice, the women have learned 16 dishes in total.

  

On June 14, the midterm evaluation for the trainees was conducted. The trainees chose their best dish to cook and present to the evaluators, which consisted of the program coordinator, our charity partner’s staff, teachers, and student representatives. Everyone demonstrated their skills and increased levels of confidence from the training and experience they acquired. They also showed how well they know each other’s abilities as they work together as a team and delegate the tasks.

The evaluation process was very detailed – checking from the trainees’ basic knowledge of the ingredients up to their overall learning attitude and how well they are able to apply what they’ve learned in practice. In the end, 2 out of the total 28 participants won the first prize. Unfortunately, three trainees were not able to participate due to personal reasons. Nonetheless, the whole event was very productive and heartwarming, seeing the women make great progress and take a step closer to realizing their dreams.

Thanks to Zuru and the 12th Annual Charity Auction for offering these 30 women a chance to change their lives.
