UQ students help Jamie’s Ministry of Food, Ipswich
Jamie's Ministry of Food Australia staged a virtual cooking class in Ipswich recently, with UQ students on hand to assist.
Held on December 2, the event celebrated the launch of the first Australian Jamie's Ministry of Food centre.
Bachelor of Health Sciences students volunteered their time to assist 10 participants, including the Premier Anna Bligh and Ipswich Mayor, Paul Pisasale, to cook alongside Jamie Oliver, who was streaming live from his kitchen in London.
Bachelor of Health Sciences program director Allyson Mutch said she was excited about the work experience opportunities Jamie's Ministry of Food Ipswich offered.
“Students in their final year of the Bachelor of Health Sciences are involved in a range of work-based placements to gain industry level experience,” Dr Mutch said.
“Our students were able to gain hands on experience, while also working with and supporting the community in which they're studying.
“It's a wonderful opportunity and the students were very excited to be involved,” she said.”
Dr Mutch said many of the students were completing nutrition majors and were passionate about diet, making them ideal people to offer support to Jamie's Ministry of Food Ipswich.
The Bachelor of Health Sciences is a three-year program that provides a broad overview of healthcare.
It is suited to students who intend to enrol in a postgraduate professional degree such as medicine, or who wish to enter the non-clinical health workforce, planning and delivering efficient quality healthcare.
Jamie's Ministry of Food Ipswich will open in early 2011 and will offer a 10-week basic cooking course.
