Hi welcome to the July food safety newsletter.
As we speak I am glad that using robust risk assessments, food safety, face to face training is making a resurgence after an extensive break.
We are working with a number of large clients resuming their face to face training programmes.
 

Why face to face you may ask?

I foresee the benefits as follows;-

  • Face to face training gives delegate’s opportunities to explore the subject in a safe environment, asking questions, doing research during the courses and challenging the tutors.

  • Not only do delegates achieve a recognised, transferable qualification, they also get a good general grounding in the subject matter.

  • The delegates are not just tapping buttons endlessly until they get the answer right as with some online courses.

  • Face to face training is tailored to the individual food premises and thus is much more relevant to the delegates involved.

  • Face to face training is seen by the delegates as something that the company has invested not only money but PRECIOUS TIME in and is seen as a development tool for the delegates.

  • It thus provides a general due diligence opportunity that if ever challenged in court could withstand the rigours of the legal system.

  • Some online courses might not provide that breath of knowledge and thus a confidence that we are doing everything to ensure we produce safe food is not achieved.

  • Face to face training is not constrained by the number of computer outlets available at any one time or the technical ability of its employees with regards to computer literacy.

  • Finally face to face training allows a greater number of delegates to be trained at one time, realising cost savings for the company.
