Learner of Level 4 Award in Food Safety (Catering) course

Susan has been such a wonderful trainer. She has made me feel calm and her method of training has given me such confidence to take my knowledge forward in the future. I have got more out of this course than just the qualification. It has pushed me to learn and use new skills that will stay with me. I thoroughly recommend this course and Susan. It has been brilliant.

N. Pickett

Learner of Level 4 Award in Food Safety (Catering) course

Classroom-based training was excellent, delivered in a friendly informed way, back by a deep understanding of the subject matter. Nothing was too much trouble and very supportive throughout.
Training materials and resources were very good both physical and online.
