Anyone who works in catering or hospitality needs to be aware of the latest food hygiene standards.
Knowing how to clean and disinfect equipment, safely store and prepare food, and control common pests will allow you to handle food safely and ensure that you’re complying with all of the relevant health and safety standards.
Our popular Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering course has been re-designed and includes all the latest legislation, information and up-to-date guidance.
This Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene Certificate for Catering course satisfies a food handler’s legal obligation to undertake appropriate food safety training.
A sound knowledge of the latest food safety principles will also improve the quality of your product or service whether you’re a self-employed caterer, a chef, a waiter, or any other role within the catering industry.
This City and Guilds accredited Level 2 Food Hygiene course is designed to provide an individual or an organisation with the very latest food safety and hygiene training. Alongside information dedicated to explaining the basics of food hygiene, it contains lessons dedicated to:
- Food safety hazards and contamination
- Food preservation
- Storage and temperature control
- Legislation that governs food handling
- Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP).
We are delighted to announce that our popular Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering course has been re-designed. Not only does it have a design that is modern and meets accessibility standards, but it has also been restructured to create a journey that better fits your needs. We understand that learners need learning that is flexible, that they can dip in and out of as they require, and that can easily fit into their schedule, and so we have broken down our course into bite-sized chunks, which will allow you to tailor your training more easily to your needs.
The material is provided in an interactive format that is designed to be engaging and accessible. A basic knowledge of food hygiene will mean learners progress quickly, but the course is designed for anyone working in the service or hospitality sectors and should be suitable for any staff member to give them the knowledge needed to work effectively and safely.
Level 2 Food Safety and Hygiene for Catering Certificate
At the end of this course, you will need to complete a test that consists of 30 multiple choice questions. Learners are required to achieve a 75% pass mark, and - if necessary - may attempt the test three times at no extra cost. If learners do not achieve the 75% pass mark, further attempts may be given by contacting our support team.
Upon completing the course, learners will be able to download a digital food hygiene certificate from Virtual College. If you have bought the posted certificate option, a high quality, seal embossed, certificate will be sent out at the beginning of the next working week. This certification is universally recognised and can be used to provide evidence of food hygiene and safety training both internally and to external auditors. There is no set time for how long a certificate is valid for, but the accepted industry standard is for food hygiene certificates to be renewed every three years. However, some employers may require you to renew your certification more frequently than this.
