Senior and middle managers have been sent back to the classroom at Tetley Tea's flagship factory in Eaglescliffe. Tetley called in the University of Teesside to give 30 senior staff a refresher course in subjects ranging from food safety to quality auditing. The five-month good management training schedule was put together by Middlesbrough based University of Teesside's food technology centre, in conjunction with Tetley. The course includes sessions on food law and regulations, food safety, quality management, quality auditing and hazard analysis. Sessions started last month and will be delivered on site until November. Food technologist Helen Hood said Teesside's food technology department planned to offer similar on-site and campus-based training programmes to other fmcg manufacturers. She said: "This is the kind of link up with the food and drinks manufacturing industry that we have been aiming to achieve since setting up the centre." She added: "It is the first time we have delivered a full programme away from the university campus." Tetley's operations quality manager Richard Hauserman said: "The company is very excited to be working with the university on this programme." {{PEOPLE MOVES }}
