FOOD SAFETY (HYGIENE)

Our short courses and workshops for this topic are designed to help companies quickly address their training needs so that they can operate hygienically, and produce products of the highest possible standard. This training can be tailored to your industry, and we make sure we correspond with standards from governing bodies such as REHIS and RSPH.

You might also find our practical guide on maintaining food safety in the workplace helpful. This matches the requirements of legislation along with the requirements to cover knowledge for recognised vocational qualifications.

Food Hygiene Level 2 (elementary):

This training course is designed to give your employees an awareness of food hygiene so that they can operate hygienically, and produce products of the highest possible standard.

The training can be delivered on your site and is tailored to your company, and we ensure that we correspond with standards from the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS).

This training would be carried out in a one-day workshop and topics we would cover are:

  • Nature of food safety
  • Food poisoning
  • Bacteria
  • Pest control
  • Cross-contamination controls
  • Personal hygiene
  • Equipment hygiene
  • Physical and chemical contamination
  • Temperature control
  • Food preservation

Once the employees have completed the training workshop, and have successfully completed an assessment, Polaris Learning would result and issue certification from the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS). There are no pre-requisites for this qualification.

Food Hygiene Level 3 (supervising food safety):

This training course is designed to train supervisors and managers to become more aware of food safety and how they contribute to a food safety culture.

The training can be delivered on your site and is tailored to your company, and we ensure that we correspond with standards from the Royal Society of Public Health (RSPH). Please note, this course is regarded as being the equivalent to intermediate food hygiene.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT DELIVERY METHOD FOR YOUR LEARNERS 

TRAINING WORKSHOP 

Focusing on the workshop approach, this training would generally be carried out in a two day workshop.

In this workshop we cover:

  • Introduction to Competence
  • Organising and Preparing
  • Carry Out Assessments
  • Discussion and Questioning
  • Judging and Recording Evidence
  • Providing Feedback
  • Quality Assurance

Once your assessors complete the training workshops, they are then required to work through the rest of the qualification back at their workplace. Your assessors are supported throughout by a Polaris Learning consultant.

On successful completion of the qualification an SQA certificate is awarded.

ONLINE LEARNING 

This involves the provision of an online training process which includes the completion of formal knowledge assignments.  This would typically take one day to complete.

The online modules are:

  • Module 1: Introduction to Competence
  • Module 2: Organising and Preparing
  • Module 3: Carry Out Assessments
  • Module 4: Discussion and Questioning
  • Module 5: Judging and Recording Evidence
  • Module 6: Feedback
  • Module 7: Quality Assurance
  • Module 8: Qualification – What Next?

Following completion of the online modules and assessment planning, the learner completes the necessary work to generate the evidence required by the qualification back in their workplace.  This includes the assessment of two individuals.

We allocate each assessor with a Polaris Learning consultant who works closely with the learner. We build in a series of live webinars or on demand webinars to support the learning process. Client reporting is built in as standard so you can keep track of progress.

The duration of the programme can be organised to suit your requirements and we can facilitate the completion of this over a short or longer period of time.

BLENDED LEARNING 

We can also offer a combination of face to face, online and webinar support and this can be tailored to meet your requirements.
