This is an excellent introduction to Food Safety in Catering and will beneﬁt all employees at all levels, particularly those who hold, or are about to hold, a food safety role within their catering organisation. The course will clarify aspects of food safety which many of us believe to be complex and daunting. The importance of food safety in catering is underpinned by health and safety legislation that places a duty on employers to establish policies and procedures and ensure their employees receive appropriate training.
Successful candidates will be awarded a national qualiﬁcation which will provide an ideal platform to higher level training or career development.
The course is made up of theoretical sessions delivered by your Instructor who will provide a detailed course programme. A range of subjects are covered that will enable you to understand:
- How individuals can take responsibility for food safety
- The importance of keeping him/herself clean and hygienic
- The importance of keeping the work areas clean and hygienic
- The importance of keeping food safe
This is achieved by on-going theoretical teaching by the instructor, culminating with a written test.
This qualiﬁcation does not expire, but refresher training and keeping up to date with changes to policies and procedures is vital to keep the qualiﬁcation current. We recommend you refresh your training every 3 years.
