Are you looking to learn more about the essential aspects of food hygiene? Our unique Food Hygiene Level 2 course, carefully developed by industry experts will provide food handlers with the legally required certification to work in the catering and hospitality sector.
Food businesses in the UK must comply with regulations from the EU, most notably 852/2004, which relates to hygiene for foodstuffs and 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.
You will learn about minimising hazards to ensure that food is safe, as well as legal responsibilities and complying with the law. Our Food Hygiene course is approved by The Royal Society in the Prevention of Accidents (ROSPA).
Our Food Hygiene Level 2 course has been structured into seven easy to follow modules covering all aspects of food safety and hygiene;
Section 1: Introduction to Food Safety – This introductory module will explore why food hygiene is so important and what risks are associated with poor standards. You will also learn about the legal requirements of food handlers as well as the consequences of breaking food safety law.
Section 2: Personal Hygiene – In this section we learn about the importance of personal hygiene. We examine how food handlers are potentially the biggest hazard in a food business and how they can ensure that they do not contaminate food with pathogenic bacteria or foreign body hazards.
Section 3: Microbiological Food Hazards and their Control – You will learn about the different types of food hazards and how they can be avoided. You will gain a thorough understanding of bacteria; how cross contamination can occur and the various techniques you can use to prevent the spread of potentially harmful bacteria in your place of work.
Section 4: Other Food Safety Hazards and their Control – In this module of the Food hygiene Level 2 course, we examine food allergens, allergic reactions and how to keep customers with food allergies safe.

We also examine the different methods of cleaning and gain an understanding of the various chemicals used in the cleaning process.
