The Level 3 Food Safety Supervision Course
This is a 2-day face to face training course designed for supervisors or those who wish to move to a supervisory role in a food preparation environment.
The food service market a is highly competitive one. Factors such as your food hygiene rating and the quality of your food preparation, as well as your front of house service can be the difference between success and failure. More to the point, as a provider of high quality food, you want to ensure that you are the very best you can be. Your customers may only see the front of house but, as you know, being the best begins in the kitchen.
It is vital that your Environmental Health Officer and Management Team have the confidence that your staff are trained to a suitable level and every food worker from a kitchen porter to head chef should be able to prove their understanding of food safety. However, what every manager knows, is that the best trained team in the world will still struggle without effective leadership. A level 3 food safety supervision course is about more than an advanced understanding of hygiene, it is also very much about effective and confident management of the food chain and the compliance of the staff who work with you.
With a level 3 course you will gain:
- The advanced understanding that leads to a 5-star hygiene rating
- Professional practice in food safety management systems
- The detailed understanding you need on food safety hazards to ensure your staff are keeping up effective hygiene processes
- Detailed knowledge of HACCP and legislation
Just as importantly though you will gain the confidence and knowledge to lead and support your team in safe practice to ensure that efficiency and the expectation of excellence are part of your daily routine. Having a level 3 trained supervisor is a big step on the way to something that all food service businesses want to achieve – a clean, safe and effective, 5 star rated kitchen that produces the best food possible.
