Course Body Title

Did you know that there are more than 500,000
cases of food poisoning in the UK each year?

EU and UK regulations state that all food handlers must
receive appropriate training in food safety practices
relevant to their duties. However, having
a good understanding of food safety practices is not
only a legal requirement, it is also essential in protecting
the health of both consumers and food handlers.

The QA Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering (QCF)
is a regulated and nationally recognised qualification
for people working, or planning to work, in the food
catering industry. The qualification is also ideal for
those who come into contact with food handling areas
due to the nature of their work, such as pest control
officers and delivery personnel.
Successful candidates will gain a strong understanding
of the importance of food safety, including correct
food handling practices and measures to reduce the
risk of contamination.
