Cheltenham College - Case Study

Cheltenham College is one of the foremost public co-educational boarding schools in the country, with an enviable reputation for academic achievement and breadth of extra-curricular opportunities.

They aim is to provide a first-class all round education, combining stunning traditional surroundings with a dynamic and modern co-educational context. 

The college provides approximately 1,800 meals a day, seven days a week, and its dedicated chefs work hard to provide a menu to cater for every pupil’s needs, whether it be a dietary or religious requirement or purely personal taste.

As part of their commitment to safety, Cheltenham College has worked with Envesca for over ten years to ensure that all catering staff are highly trained with a combination of public and in-house courses undertaken.  In addition, Envesca has supported the College in creating and developing its food safety and health and safety management systems.

Andrew Hailes, the Domestic Bursar at Cheltenham College, says, “We recognise the importance of keeping up to date with changing legislation and the need to ensure that our staff have the best
quality training possible.  Envesca’s specialist knowledge and the company’s accessibility have been key to the great relationship we have built over the years.

Envesca has trained our new recruits as well as refreshing the knowledge of our other team members. They also update our Food Safety Management System and Health and Safety Manual
as our requirements change and develop.   Their annual inspection gives us very good guidance as to how we might be viewed by the Environmental Health Officer (EHO) and enables us to improve our systems and processes on an ongoing basis.”

What Cheltenham College have to say about us...

"The outcome is staff that are more vigilant and motivated with a greater understanding of food safety and health and safety procedures."

Empowering staff was a key requirement when Blue Earth Foods chose us as their training provider. Alongside Food Safety training, we also delivered courses in Negotiation and Leadership. This holistic approach developed better communication, with staff keen to implement new ideas.

Attending our IOSH Managing Safely course has encouraged staff at Poeton to think and approach health and safety in a different way. Staff continually look for ways to improve the health and safety culture and are confident in managing and reviewing their risk assessments.

Back in 2014 with our expert support, a training plan was created to better support the senior management team with their health and safety responsibilities. The managers were really impressed with the quality of the training and continue to use our training services to-date.
