The Scottish Prison Service has made a huge financial investment at its HMP Edinburgh facility with the construction of a new production kitchen and a new training kitchen. Along with many other Scottish Prisons, HMP Edinburgh is an Approved Training Centre delivering REHIS courses on a regular basis for inmates and prison catering staff.
Following a recent tour of the training kitchen, Tom Bell, Chief Executive and Graham Walker, Director of Training took the opportunity to present Frank Greig, a successful course participant, with his REHIS Elementary Food Hygiene Certificate. Possession of this industry recognised qualification provides participants with the knowledge to help them to handle food safely and presents holders with an advantage when seeking employment in the catering and hospitality industry.
REHIS welcomes the investment in food safety training at HMP Edinburgh and is wholly supportive of the endeavours of the Governor and staff involved.
