This course is a nationally recognised level 2 qualification in Food Safety in Catering particularly aimed at people who cook and handle food for others in the outdoors from youth organisations, Forest School leaders and other outdoor educators among many others.

The aim of the day is to combine the theory of food safety with the practical skills of cooking lunch in the outdoors developing good practice guidelines in hopefully a fun, interactive manner. An ‘Outline of the programme’ will include:

  • Importance of Food Safety in the woods incorporating HACCP
  • Microbes – Where are they “lurking”?
  • Illnesses linked to food and the outdoors
  • Hygiene Control – Temperature control, Storage, Handling, Preparation, Cooking, Equipment…
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Food Safety Control – planning a HACCP relevant to your practice.

After successful completion candidates will receive a certificate from the CIEH and a ‘Blake Training’ certificate, personalising the additional outdoor food safety topics covered.

A multiple – choice test will conclude at the end of the course.
