    Core Principles Training & Consultancy

    We are very proud of the excellent reviews we collect from people who both organise and participate in our Training Courses.

    The tutor was particularly good in explaining herself and incorporating members of the group. My second train the trainer, this one was more enjoyable.

    Good day, new knowledge will help people become more effective. Confident now-to distribute new information to colleagues.

    I particularly liked Stella’s way of explaining and practical side of things. Stella was very professional and gave great ideas in order to train others ourselves.

    I have acquired in-depth knowledge of Food Safety. The trainer was very knowledgeable & engaging. She was very thorough in the delivery of the course & ensured the training was of high quality.
