VWA Top Student Wins Prestigious RSPH Food Safety Award

VWA Top Student Wins Prestigious RSPH Food Safety Award

Wayne Bonadie, a student with food industry training experts, Verner Wheelock Associates, gained the highest marks in the country when he took his RSPH Level 4 Food Safety for Manufacturing examination last year and was recognised with an award at the recent RSPH Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony in London.

Mr Bonadie, who now works at Essex distillers and blenders, Hayman Limited, was the Quality Assurance Manager and HACCP Team Leader of a 4 million litres a week liquid milk production site for Dairy Crest, Fenstanton, Cambridgeshire at the time of the training. An excellent student, he had previously undertaken his Lead Auditor and Level 4 HACCP training with VWA and achieved Distinctions in both.

He said “I was pleasantly surprised to win the RSPH award. Being responsible for food safety and quality at such a large manufacturing operation, it was felt that a detailed overview of food safety issues in manufacturing environments was needed to better perform my daily duties as well as train factory operatives. Also many customers, including supermarkets, now require site QA and Technical Managers to have the firm grounding and training in food safety which the RSPH Level 4 qualifications requires.”

The course was structured and delivered in such a way that that Wayne was able to use the knowledge he gained from day one. Now at Hayman, he says he will be using it “to improve good manufacturing practices, food safety and also operator training and awareness.”

VWA’s Managing Director, Alison Wheelock, said “We were delighted and proud that Wayne won the RSPH Award. It’s testament to both his ability and the talent of our trainers. Our students consistently achieve very high marks, but Wayne really was outstanding. ”

Tutors on the VWA RSPH Level 4 Food Safety for Manufacturing course when Wayne attended in September 2011 were Ruth Bell, Colleen Rudge and Peter Clarke. VWA use a variety of trainers so that delegates can derive full benefit from their different specialisms.

As Alison adds “Ruth specialises in HACCP, Colleen is an Environmental Health Officer and Peter has many years’ industry experience as a trainer and auditor. Having three tutors rather than one also means that course content is kept fresh and up-to-date since all three input to the course content and have a wide range of experience and case studies to illustrate key points.”

VWA’s next Level 4 Award in Managing Food Safety takes place between 4th – 8th March 2013. For more information about this and other courses in HACCP, Auditing, Food Safety, Nutrition and Specialist courses, please visit www.vwa.co.uk.
