Exclusive Butler School

Onboard Level 2 Award in Food Safety, Dubai         

Exclusive Butler School provides intensive butler training courses, superyacht and chalet steward/ess interior courses and butler/hospitality Training

Exclusive Butler School contated us to arrange food safety training onboard their clients yacht in Dubai. To save on travel costs we ran two courses on consecutive days and arranged flights overnight to cut down on travel costs. 22 crew completed the Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering on board, 11 per day.

“We chose Axtell Food Safety to provide food safety training to our client’s staff members – 20 staff on-board their yacht in the Middle East.  The training was very successful, and we were very pleased with the level of training provided.  We chose Axtell Food Safety for their expertise, and will definitely be using them again in the future.”

Ethelbert Childrens Services

Level 2 Award in Food Safety Courses, Kent, UK

 Ethelbert Childrens Services provide residential care and fostering services to children and young people who are unable to live with their own families.

Ethelbert Childrens Services approached us to deliver in-house Level 2 Award in Food Safety courses for their carers. We run regular courses at their training centre, with refresher training provided when required.  

Dawn said; “Initially we located Axtell Food Safety online. After a meeting where we outlined our requirements, we began working with David in 2017. Feedback from our staff has always been positive.

When asked what did you enjoy most about today, replies included; ‘The refreshing way the topic was delivered; Very informative, much better that previous trainer on this subject, thank you; All of it-  Open discussion and how he did PowerPoint; The level of depth he went in to the topic; The enthusiasm of the trainer  –  Very laid back approach which enabled me to take more in.’

We hope to continue using Axtell Food Safety for any future training.”

Worthing Pier Southern Pavilion 

HACCP Support and in-house Food Safety training     

Worthing Pier Southern Pavilion was a new food business opening up

Worthing Pier`s Southern Pavilion had recently refurbished and wanted some advice on how to achieve a 5 star food hygiene rating. We carried out regular food safety audits, helped to set up and implement a food safety management system and provided a report of our findings and an action plan of suggested improvements. Level 1 – 3 Awards in Food Safety were carried out in-house for front of house employees, chefs and supervisors

Richard Bradley, Director of Worthing Pier: “We found Ford Training through an internet search and from our initial conversation Dave knew exactly what we were looking for as a new restaurant business. Dave carried out a food hygiene audit, wrote a report with recommendations and priorities and re-visited our premises to discuss his report. We found it easy to follow and logical. Dave also carried out a three hour level 1 award in food safety training session, which the staff found really useful and interesting. We were inspected the following week by EHO and were awarded 5 stars for our food hygiene rating!”

New Food Businesses

 We have helped a variety of food businesses to set up. From registering the food business with the local authority to providing guidance regarding the design and construction requirements of a food premises, we can help. 

For a new food business we helped recently, we helped with;

– registering the food business

-designing and implementing a food safety management system 

– provision of simple to use kitchen record keeping 

–  an allergen management system to prevent the contamination of food with allergens, to ensure the safe preparation of food for an allergy sufferer, and to effectively communicate allergen information between customers, employees and suppliers

– regular food safety audits with action plan 

– food safety and allergens training for front of house and back of house team members, and HACCP training for chefs
