A Unique Food Hygiene Training Partnership

Two of Birmingham’s best know Social Enterprises, Concept Conference Centre and ENTA Works, have teamed up to deliver the CIEH Level 2 Award for Food Satety. Both enterprises run their own conference and catering services and have 5H/* ratings for food hygiene from Birmingham City Council.

What makes this training truly unique is that it is delivered by Jo Miller, Concept’s registered blind Chef, and is designed to be accessible to all.

Many trainers in the hospitality industry tend to overlook the needs of individuals on a training course; and why wouldn’t they when the industry tends not to employ disabled people in hospitality and kitchen roles. Jo’s delivery of the course takes into account the needs of the individual, for example, extra time for the exam, coloured overlays for the papers, as well as, other reasonable adjustments.

ENTA Works and Concept also train staff (many of whom are furtherst away from the employment market) to work in their kitchens and conferencing centres. Working with individuals to help bring out their skills is at the heart of what these two social enterprises do.

The “You and Food Safety” course is available to individuals, managers or employers that need to take the CIEH Level 2 Food Hygiene Qualification; for more information or to book please visit the Concept Website or download the brouchure
