We’ve been working with Chartwells Independent since 2014, delivering training to its catering teams working in private schools and sixth forms all over the UK. Managing director Alice Woodwark shares her experience of working with Norland.
“As the UK’s first contract catering company specialising in food service and hospitality management for independent schools, we pride ourselves in tailoring our services to our clients’ individual requirements. Fresh local ingredients and world-class culinary techniques provide diverse, innovative, menus to support the highest quality education with the highest quality food and pastoral care. Norland College’s reputation as the most prestigious provider of training for nannies and childcare practitioners in the UK is second to none so we contacted them about undertaking some research for our business to look at how we can support our teams within Chartwells Independent Prep schools.
“Norland have provided us with a bespoke training programme which has been an invaluable learning tool for our teams and given them a unique insight and perspective. The courses are a real USP within our market place”.
“Norland College’s vision and mission is reflective of the Chartwells Independent brand and ethos as well as the calibre of our clients. Also, really relevant for us is that all Norland Nannies are taught what a healthy balanced diet consists of for children. Norland have provided us with a bespoke training programme which has been an invaluable learning tool for our teams and given them a unique insight and perspective.
“The courses are a real USP within our market place and will drive retention, added value programmes, staff development, word of mouth recommendations and ultimately new business. I would have no hesitation in recommending Norland College. They have been a great partner and we hope to develop more training tools and insightful programmes as we move forward together.”
