The Envesca Story

Back in 1996, in a small home office in Gloucester, Envesca was born. Sue and Simon Ellis created the business to deliver first-class food hygiene training.

With a vision of championing a safe and healthy environment and determined to build a company renowned for its exceptional customer service. They set about creating a business that offered customers a positive learning environment. In addition, they created learning that engaged, inspired, and encouraged candidates and delivered outstanding results. Today it’s these same principles that underpin everything Envesca does.

What Our Customers Say About Us

The Highfield Level 3 Delivering Training course was delivered at a perfect pitch whether you were new to training or had been delivering for years. Simon’s relaxed, humorous, and empathetic approach created a positive and engaging learning environment while maintaining a high level of professionalism. I would highly recommend the course to those who are currently delivering training in their role.

Success Rate Speaks For Itself

I found the whole experience from initially booking the Level 4 Health and Safety Course to completion a very educational journey. The whole Envesca team pull out all the stops to ensure you are well-equipped and ready for the training. We have used Envesca as our training provider for many years, and their success rate speaks for itself.

I have just finished my Level 4 Food Safety Course with Mel, and whilst I have completed the feedback form. I feel it did not give me the room to complete in-depth feedback on Mel and how she taught the course.

Having never completed an online Zoom course before, I was somewhat apprehensive. From the start and throughout the course, Mel put me at ease. Mel’s exclamations throughout the course were clear, concise and easy to understand. It was apparent throughout the course that Mel knew her subject extremely well, and on the infrequent occasions we had obscure questions (two questions), Mel was straight to the point, stating she did not know and had the answers within about an hour rather than trying to bluff the answer.

Whilst her teaching style appears relaxed, Mel was very professional and quickly got to know her students and their learning styles. I was a trainer for sixteen years for a national charity, so I have a good knowledge of the good and poorly run course. This was by far one of the best health and safety courses I have ever attended, and I would greatly appreciate it if you could please pass on to Mel my thanks for such an excellent course. I cannot rate Mel highly enough.

The Level 2 Food Safety Refresher Course was a good refresher on my food safety knowledge. The trainer gave clear instructions and was very helpful. I would recommend this course to others needing to refresh their food safety knowledge.

The Advanced Food Safety Refresher Course was brilliant! The trainer was very knowledgeable and expertly shared this with us, which was really helpful. I would describe the course using the following three words helpful, excellent and knowledgeable. The fact it was delivered via Zoom was brilliant, too, as it saved on travel and accommodation costs and was the best way to update my knowledge in these challenging times. The whole course was perfect – hats off to Mr Simon Ellis!!
