Switchback Trainee Raf on the right track

By September 1, 2017 No Comments

For a great start to your weekend, here’s Switchback Trainee Raf on his final cafe shift last week.

After spending over four years in prison, he was determined not to return, and started his training with us at the end of July. He’d worked in the prison kitchen and seen the value of routine in changing things up. So even though Raf knew he didn’t want to seek chef work long-term, he threw himself into training at Cafe From Crisis for six weeks.

Throughout his training, Raf knew that he wanted to work in the railway industry, and we’re delighted to say he’s now started a full-time railway course, including personal track safety and track induction.

We’re so proud of the distance Raf has travelled – and can’t wait to see what great things are further down the line for him!
