Course Overview

This session is designed to prepare learners for the accredited L2 Food Safety in Catering Award. Learners will utilise Moodle to access online course materials. The course will highlight the requirements of organisations to maintain safe food production and provision. Topics will include an introduction to cross-contamination, cooking, chilling and cleaning practices.
