Food Safety Level 2 

'Food Glorious Food' is a delight to be enjoyed by everyone, but according to the Food Standards Agency, around 70,000 people across England and Wales suffer the effects of food poisoning. Much of this is the result of a lack of basic food knowledge, poor hygiene and appropriate food management processes. This course will provide you with the appropriate knowledge necessary to obtain a Basic Food Hygiene Certificate issued by the Royal Society for Promotion of Health (RSPH).

What will you learn?

  • Health and Safety implications
  • Importance of food safety
  • Hazards to food (physical, chemical, biological)
  • Food-related illness
  • Time and temperature control
  • Personal hygiene techniques
  • Cleaning and disinfection
  • Food premises and equipment

How is it assessed?

There is an MCQ examination at the end of the course. This paper is then marked externally by the Royal Society for Promotion of Health (RSPH). Successful candidates will then be awarded a certificate valid for 3 years.
