We are pleased to announce the winners of the Verner Wheelock Excellence Awards 2016. The Awards, launched in 2015 to coincide with our 25th Anniversary, recognise the achievements of delegates who have attended Verner Wheelock courses, either at our premises in Skipton, or in-house at their own premises.
There are five different Excellence Awards – for HACCP, Auditing, Food Safety, Individual Excellence and Company Excellence. The recipients of awards in HACCP, Food Safety and Auditing were nominated by Verner Wheelock course tutors as having been enthusiastic, highly competent and had understood the subject well. All had scored highly in advanced Level 4 examinations.
The winner of the Individual Excellence Award took our specialist ‘Training the Trainer’ course. She showed great creativity and had really brought the subject to life. The course tutor said of her final presentation: “Her enthusiasm was excellent and she gave the funniest microteach of the food handler from hell that I have seen.”
The final decision for the winner of the Company Excellence Award was difficult, but in the end we awarded it to a company that has trained with us for several years and whose delegates all achieved excellent results this year.
The results are:
HACCP Student of the Year:
Tina Sayers, PAS Grantham
Auditing Student of the Year:
Kathryn Broadburn, F Smales & Sons
Food Safety Student of the Year:
Chris Shields, Symingtons
Individual Excellence Award:
Sharon Jacques, Harper Green School
Company Excellence Award:
Pladis Group (United Biscuits)
In addition to receiving an award and certificate, the winners also receive a voucher towards their next Verner Wheelock training course.
Alison Wheelock, our Managing Director said “Once again, it’s great to be able to reward the achievements of our delegates. All awards are thoroughly well-deserved. It’s also a testament to the hard work and dedication of our trainers that it’s such a difficult task to select the winners from a huge pool of talent.”
