Success stories:

Harley Palmer

"I work in the kitchen of a popular pub chain. Food hygiene was of course covered when I first got the job, but I was hoping to advance into a senior position and believed an online course would show my level of commitment, as well as being rather useful for myself too. After taking and passing this nifty course on my first attempt, although I didn’t need to worry as I could have taken it over and over again until I succeeded, I was soon promoted. Some of the extra pay will definitely be going on more online courses!"

David Wells

"Thanks to this food hygiene course, I was able to gain plenty of useful information about food safety and the laws and regulations surrounding it. The interactive lessons and mock exams at the end of each unit really helped me remember what I had learnt, and whenever I was unsure about something, I could rely on the unlimited online tutor support service. And unlike some other online courses, which give you a lot less help but demand a lot more, I only had to get over 70% on the last assessment to pass."
