Training your team at your venue - for eight or more people
In house training is available for multiple staff at your organisation. Delivered at your venue, we can train up to 16 people in one four hour session. We can tailor the course specifically to meet your needs and include discussions around your organisation's processes. Please email Oonagh Eastmond for a quote and more information.
Host a catering training course at your venue - ideal for small teams
Hosting an open course event is ideal for six or less delegates. Coeliac UK will then publicise this event, opening up the extra places to your local community and spreading the word about your venue hosting the event. This is a great way to show your commitment in providing gluten-free options in your local area. Please contact Oonagh Eastmond to discuss.
