Flexible training

Do you want to motivate your workforce, improve the experience of your customers and ensure your business reputation is first class?

Successful food businesses are often the ones that invest in developing their people with regular learning and training.

Seafish, the public body supporting the £10bn UK seafood industry, offers a variety of flexible food safety and health & safety training programmes to suit the needs of people working in a busy fish frying business.

Its Elementary level programmes can be studied using an open learning self-study workbook. The food hygiene pack is available in Lithuanian, Polish and Portuguese as well as English. Once a candidate has completed their study programme they can take the short invigilated exam that leads to a nationally recognised and regulated qualification. The exam is a 30 question multiple choice test and our UK wide community of invigilators can usually organise an exam onsite at your business at a convenient time.

All candidates get access to a free online version of the open learning modules and an online testing portal to help them get ready for their exam, or to generate a company training record.

Candidates can also study our Introductory level food hygiene in the seafood industry programme, a short three to four hour taught course, delivered at a venue that is suitable to your business. This is ideal for a group of up to 15 trainees and can be taught in eight languages including English, Welsh and Polish. Trainees complete a 20 question multiple choice exam at the end of the course to achieve a nationally recognised and regulated qualification.

If you are the owner, manager or supervisor, you may wish to consider Seafish's Intermediate food safety qualification. This online eLearning programme allows the student to study at work or at home which means you can learn at a time, place and pace that suits you. A tutor is also allocated to provide telephone support. No travelling to college is involved and when you are ready, Seafish will organise the exam at a place and time that is appropriate to you.

Learners who pass any of the exams for the programmes outlined above receive a nationally recognised and regulated qualification from Seafish and the Royal Environmental Health Institute for Scotland.

More information on all of these courses is available on the Seafish website at
