About Bob Elsey

About me

A bit about me. I spent the first part of my working life as a caterer in the Royal Air Force.  Upon leaving the RAF in 1992 , I worked for a number of companies.  It was around 1999 that I decided that my future was to start my own business, a daunting task, as I was giving up a good salary and had a new edition to the family, a 2 month old baby boy.

On the 9th August 1999 Pennine Management Services was established as a business consultancy. It was working within the care homes industry to improve issues relating to resident occupancy. The company did well, but I was getting bored and needed a new challenge. Therefore, I looked to other avenues for the business to venture and grow.

I’ve wanted to teach for many years, but not just any subject.  I have a passion for the food industry, particularly food safety and health and safety. As a result, I decided  this was going to be my next challenge.

I went back into education and obtained my qualifications in education through Doncaster College and the University of Hull. As a result after many years,  I proudly graduated, with the necessary qualifications to teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector.Therefore, full of excitement and the challenges ahead, I changed the business from a consultancy to a training business. As a result, in 2008, Pennine Training Services was established. I focus on teaching food safety at all levels to large and small companies and therefore, I can proudly include company names like Cadbury’s, McDonald and many more well-known names within my portfolio of providing training.  The rest is history, as the company continues to prosper.


I believe in providing the highest quality and most engaging learning experience as a qualified teacher, employing the most effective, appropriate and innovative delivery and assessment methods.

Quality is central to my business ethos and I work hard to achieve great results for my customers, whether this is through my classroom, on-line learning or at your workplace. I provide ongoing support throughout your journey with Pennine Training Services.
