This Level 3 Supervising Food Safety course covers those aspects of the supervision of food hygiene and safety which enable candidates to identify problem areas and to recommend solutions. The course is firmly based on Industry Standards developed by People 1st, the Sector Skills Council for the hospitality industry, and conforms to the qualification template developed by awarding bodies under the guidance of the Sector Skills Council for Hospitality, Leisure, Travel and Tourism, People 1st.
The Level 3 course is aimed at those who are supervising other staff within a food business - whether that be catering, manufacturing or food retailing. We would recommend that all food premises should have at least one person trained to Level 3 - particularly if they are in charge of other staff and are responsible for the training of those staff. This course will provide a deeper understanding of Food Safety than Level 2 and will also consider some of the implications of poor food hygiene.
The aim of this course is to provide a broad knowledge of food safety and food hygiene. Leaners who have undertaken this course will have the appropriate knowledge and understanding to be able to take responsibility for food safety monitoring procedures, to identify food safety hazards, take appropriate action in the light of these hazards and contribute to improvements in food safety practice. It is an ideal link between the Food Safety and Hygiene Level 2 course and the more advanced Level 4 in Managing Food Safety in Catering.
