Celebration event marks completion of ‘Let’s Get Cooking’ course

Thu, April 27, 2023

A special event was recently held to recognise the achievements of local people who have participated in the Let’s Get Cooking Programme.

The programme was organised by Causeway Coast and Glen’s Labour Market Partnership (LMP) and provided the opportunity for participants to upskill - learning about nutrition, budgeting, and healthy eating.

All those who completed the course also completed their Level One certificate in food hygiene and safety.

Presenting certificates to the participants, Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens, Councillor Ivor Wallace said:

“It is fantastic to be here today to mark the achievements of everyone who has participated in the Let’s Get Cooking programme.

“For many, this is only the first step of their journey, as a number of participants have already registered for further training courses. I wish them well with their endeavours.”

Dearbháile Hutchinson, LMP Development Officer added:

“This programme has been a great success. We are delighted that so many people from across the Borough have engaged and got so much out of the course. We look forward to supporting these individuals with further education and training to help them reach their potential.”

The Let’s Get Cooking programme was funded by the Department for Communities through their Labour Market Partnership initiative. To find out more about our programmes please visit our website or email
