1. CFSP for those OPEN TO WORK. FEA is offering its CFSP course for free to people from the hospitality industry who have been made redundant as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and are looking for work within the industry. The course, which normally costs £950 + VAT, has limited numbers, so anyone interested is encouraged to apply soon. Up for grabs are 40 places – 20 for those who worked in the foodservice supply chain and 20 for people from the foodservice operator side. This special course will have exactly the same content, benefits and cachet as the standard CFSP course and will be led by Graham Veal MBA FCIM CFSP, founder and managing partner of GCA Management.
