Course Details

This training is the first part of a wider Food Hygiene and Safety CPD Course. It offers teachers, senior leaders, and other education professionals an overview and understanding of the food safety legislation relevant to schools. 

As premises that provide food, schools must be registered as food businesses with their local authority. When Ofsted visits or inspects your premises, part of its role is to ensure that a school is compliant with food safety legislation, and failure to meet the standards can result in the removal of registration or enforcement action - or affect the school’s rating.

This CPD course covers the basics of a school’s requirements under the law, beginning with good hygiene and prevention of cross-contamination. It goes into the traceability of food, CCPs (critical control points), regulations around transportation and delivery, and the due diligence expected of those involved in or in charge of food prep and distribution.

There are several pieces of food safety legislation and governing bodies relevant to schools in the UK. Course participants will learn about the Food Acts, the Food Standards Agency UK, Food Standards Scotland, Environmental Health Agencies, and other entities.

Equip yourself for better food safety with this informative and practical CPD opportunity! There are three more parts that combine with this training to make up the full Food Hygiene and Safety CPD course.
