Getting ahead: food safety training at a supervisory level

If you want to get ahead in your career within the food or hospitality industry, or any sector in which food is prepared or manufactured, you will need the right training. To progress to a supervisory level, the CIEH Level 3 Award in Food Safety is an essential.

This three-day training course is perfect for those wanting to make the jump from staff to supervisor. It is suitable for people working within a range of different industries (i.e. retail, catering, hospitality or manufacturing) and it gives you a brilliant opportunity to take control of your career and take on more responsibility with confidence. It equips trainee supervisors or those wanting a refresher with the essential knowledge and skills to really make the job their own.

For example, on a Level 3 food safety course of this kind, you are likely to learn about:

  • Cleaning
  • Preventing and controlling contamination
  • How to apply and maintain good hygiene practices and food safety procedures
  • Relevant legislation
  • Training others in food safety
  • Supervisory management
  • Temperature control for chilling or cooking

Attaining this qualification is particularly important in the wake of 2006 legislation changes which spotlighted food sector supervisors and made them more accountable for maintaining standards within their businesses.
