What they Say

We know our programmes are probably the best on the market, but don’t take our word for it – see what our customers have to say:

“We have used CLS for a number of years, initially launching the training within one of the properties and quickly sharing the best practice across the estate both in the cluster and nationally.

The programmes enable the hotels to enrol associates onto the Food Hygiene programmes easily and quickly, ensuring full legal and company compliance for all areas of food service, culinary and housekeeping.

New starters can be enrolled instantly and refresher training takes place every 3 years.

The training is detailed and broken into manageable sections that can be completed within one session, or students can complete individual sections over a longer period.

I am extremely pleased both with the programme content and certification, as well as the support we receive from the CLS team”.

Cluster Director of Human Resources – Marriott Hotels

“I have looked at the market or eLearning and Creative Learning Solutions always comes in as the most cost effective. The Level 2 Health & Safety training has always been well received by Managers and the main thing is that it’s actually applicable to what happens on the shop floor. The CLS system of eLearning allows zone Managers the flexibility to plan training when it’s convenient to do so. And having the certificates online have proved to be very valuable when we require evidence for audits and eLearning with CLS proves very cost effective, saving significant sums of money from my training budget”

Learning & Development Manager – Greencore Group

“We have used Creative Learning Solutions for many years and their food hygiene course is one of the best on the market, the new additional courses have been a great addition and have helped us as a company stay legally compliant in a cost effective way. The customer service is always excellent and they are always quick to help with any queries.”

HR and Training Manager, Kornicis Group Limited

“Creative Learning Solutions have resolved all our training problems in a cost-effective manner. With 200 retail staff it was very difficult to keep on top of the food safety training and each time we ran a course it meant losing 15-20 staff out of the shops at the same time which was extremely difficult to cover. The internet based training means all of our new staff are now trained before they join us and we were easily able to work through existing staff without causing any operational problems. Added to this CLS are a pleasure to deal with!”

Director – Couglans Bakeries

“South Devon Healthcare Trust has been using the Food Hygiene training for over 10 years, ensuring that Catering and Domestic staff continually receive appropriate training. The training is used for both first time learners and also as refresher training, and since its implementation with the Trust has expanded into use by Nursing, Medical Staff and others….

The success of the training is due to its being the perfect medium for staff who have limited time. It allows staff to undertake the course at convenient times during their shifts and can be completed at their pace, without the time constraints and pressures which are often associated with other forms of training.

Staff find the format and delivery easy, understandable and interesting, resulting in extremely high first time pass rates. This helps to instil confidence in operatives with little or no previous training in this area. I would therefore have no hesitation in recommending the training package to anyone needing to provide this type of training.”

Assistant Director of Facilities, South Devon Healthcare NHS Trust

“Relevant, helpful and engaging interactive programmes. Students like the interactive approach and are able to maintain focus and concentration. Activities are varied, challenging and designed to suit different learning styles. Students particularly like the end of unit module tests. Raises aspirations and gives them a real sense of achievement, fosters a positive attitude – once they get the hang of it they all aim for 100%. Feedback is immediate which is a real plus.

Material is very relevant to student needs. Both programmes provide an excellent overview of the subject areas and good value.

We use the FNHE course to compliment our BTEC level 2 and 3 Health and Social Care courses and promote independent learning. Provides a valuable introduction to level 3, especially for students whose knowledge of food and diet is limited. Once signed on we often find students completing in their own time and in competition with each other!

Food Safety is also offered as part of the level 2 course – students have realised this has the added bonus of being a recognised workplace qualification which they can use to help secure part time jobs. Such is our success here that, responding to student demand the course is now offered to Post 16 students as part of our enrichment programme and to other students (those not taking H/S Care courses) in our extension studies programme.

As a teacher I find the relevance of the material to syllabus content priceless. It provides students with the opportunity to consolidate their work in a fun and different way. They really enjoy the activities offered – in conclusion these programmes are great.”

The Marsh Academy

“Ours is a small company, employing less than 50 staff, with an urgent need for Basic Food Hygiene. I inherited a system where staff would be taken off the floor en-masse, totally disrupting production. With the CLS system we can train one member of staff at a time, at any hour of the day, (or night) which fits in perfectly with our systems.

The Polish version also covers our training needs in this area very well. At our recent BRC audit we received an ‘A’ grade for the first time, no small thanks to our ability to demonstrate regular and consistent Food Hygiene training in more than one language.”

Personnel & Training Manager, Chantilly Patisserie

“As a Food teacher and Program Leader  I have been using the Creative Learning Solution Food and Hygiene Award for several years with students and find the award invaluable. It works very well to help students embed the importance of Food Hygiene in their learning and has the added benefit of certification which adds another string to their bow with regard to their record of achievement. Students are able to access the award both at home and in school and can then work and their own pace to achieve the award. An excellent award to complete”.

Head of Food Technology, The Deanes School

“This package is superb, the easy to follow format ensures that even candidates with learning challenges can follow it with minimum supervision, freeing up valuable teaching time. Highly recommended!”

Catering Teacher HMP & YOI Ashfield

“I was very impressed with the product and feel it is an invaluable resource for our training toolkit in schools and care homes.”

Site Services Manager Education (Schools and Social Services), Devon County Council

“The Food Safety Interactive programe is excellent for new candidates and also for candidates refreshing their knowledge. It is very convenient and easy to use – even in the Highlands of Scotland!Many thanks for all your help”

Operations Manager, GO@L Training

“The Food Safety e-learning course has proved to be both cost effective and very user friendly. We no longer have to book expensive training courses weeks in advance as the staff can complete their hygiene training in house at a time that suits them.”
