About the Courses
Food Safety Level 2 – ROSPA Accredited
There are certain regulations from the EU that food businesses in the UK must comply with. Most notably, 852/2004 which relates to hygiene for foodstuffs states that businesses in the food services sector must ensure that staff who handle or prepare food are sufficiently instructed, trained and supervised to carry out their work. Our Food Safety/Food Hygiene Level 2 course has been developed with this in mind and is aimed at anyone within the hospitality or catering sectors, whether they are self-employed or employed. The material that you will study is suitable for employees working in schools, colleges or hospitals as well as fast food outlets, restaurants, hotels, kitchens, bars, cafes or takeaways.
Food Allergens Level 2
The aim of this Food Allergen course is to increase awareness and expand your knowledge of allergies and intolerances. Consumers must be well informed about their choices and if asked you must provide customers with detailed information about the ingredients contained in any food item or beverage that you prepare and/or serve. There is no known cure for allergies. The only way that a consumer can prevent a reaction is to avoid the allergen completely. Allergies can also vary in severity and for some consumers, even a trace amount of an allergen could result in a severe and potentially life threatening reaction. As you progress through the Food Allergens course you will learn about the 14 allergens in detail, the symptoms, how to label food products, the importance of avoiding cross contamination and practical steps you can take to reduce the risk when preparing or serving food and drink.
HACCP – Hazard Analysis Criticial Control Point
The Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) course is an essential requirement of many roles in the food services sector. In this industry there are a number of risks and as a professional it is your responsibility to understand these risks and how to control or reduce them. This course will teach you everything you need to know about HACCP procedures including developing working practices, reducing risk and handling food safely.
During this course you will learn about each stage of the HACCP food safety system and identify common food safety hazards and the skills that help you prevent food contamination. The material will also cover relevant legislation including requirements relating to workplaces in England, Wales and Scotland.
