We are constantly adapting to changing times and our virtual and hybrid training programmes are evidence of this.

Our training programmes can be delivered “old-school” in a face-to-face environment or facilitated through our virtual live instructor platform – we can also combine these options to deliver “Hybrid” programmes which combine the best of both.

Supplier Quality Assurance Workshop

Supplier performance has a huge impact on the performance of a company. Supply chains are becoming longer and more complex and it is possible to source inputs from around the world. Careful supplier selection supplier evaluation will ensure that they are not the source of major disruptions in the supply of an organisations’ products and services. This workshop is designed to equip delegates with the knowledge to do just that.

Fundamentals of Risk Management (Food Safety, Quality, Environmental, Health and Safety)

All companies are faced with risks – both internally and from the environment within which they operate. Risk management is a proactive process by which possible risks can be identified before they happen. It allows businesses to create controls to mitigate risks or the impact of the risks and to deal with the impact of the risks. This workshop is designed to highlight the approach and methodology for risk management within the context of quality, food safety, health and safety and environmental management systems.
