Overview

The Food Safety / Food Hygiene Level 2 course will give food handlers the legally required certification to work in the catering and hospitality sector.

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.

Description

Course Content

Our Food Safety/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 safety is so important and what risks are associated with poor food safety and hygiene standards. You will also learn about the legal requirements of food handlers as well as the consequences of breaking food safety law.

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.

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.

Other Food Safety Hazards and their Control – In this module we examine food allergens, allergic reactions and how to keep customers with food allergies safe. We also cover chemical and physical food contamination and how you can prevent it from occurring.

Food Handling, Storage and Preparation – Here we learn how to handle food correctly, from delivery through to serving customers. Find out how to store food correctly to avoid spoilage and contamination, how to prepare foods safely and the importance of temperature control.

Keeping the Workplace Clean and Hygienic – In this section we learn why it is essential to clean correctly and how to clean effectively. We also examine the different methods of cleaning and gain an understanding of the various chemicals used in the cleaning process.

Design of Food Premises and the Control of Pests – Finally, we examine how the proper design of food premises can prevent the risk of food contamination. We also gain an understanding of the various risks associated with common pests and how we can control them.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
