  • About This Course
    20% of adults in the UK suffer from at least one allergy. That’s roughly 2 million people who could be at risk from an allergic reaction. If you work in the production, cooking or serving of food, it is your responsibility to ensure that no allergens are found in the food given to an allergy sufferer. You never know when one of those 2 million may walk through your door, which is why it’s imperative that you have an awareness of allergens and know how to responsibly provide food for those with allergies, in order to avoid potentially life-threatening consequences. Allergen Awareness explores food preparation, production, handling and more to give you a comprehensive overview of allergen awareness and food safety. 

    Who is this course for?

    Allergen Awareness is a food safety training course aimed at anyone working, or aspiring to work, in a catering setting. This includes people involved in the production, preparation, cooking, handling, transportation, serving or selling of food. As a food and drink provider, an understanding of food allergies and safety is crucial to keeping your customers’ lives out of potential danger.  

    What will you get from this course?

    Upon course completion, you will understand the importance of recognising allergies in food and the affects that allergens can have on people who are allergic or intolerant to them. You will know how to safely handle, process and prepare food and drink in order to comply with health and safety legislations and avoid allergen-related sickness. As a result, you will be able to keep your customers safe and healthy.

    • Acknowledge the importance of allergen awareness and food safety

Confidence Booster

I was given Criminology for beginners course as a Christmas present, would never have thought of doing it myself but I have enjoyed it so much. It was so easy to do and very hard to put down. It’s like reading a good book then having a test on it. There is no pressure, no tutor hurrying you up and no time limits on the tests, just how learning should be. The written report I received after the ...

thoroughly enjoyed this course. There was no rush and I could take it at my own time. I am visually impaired and this has boosted my confidence immensely. I had no trouble with any of the modules.

When people know you have a disabilit...

Great informative course

I have done 3 courses now, 2 on dog grooming and one on human anatomy. All have been at my own speed. The modules allow me to pick it up and do when i have a spare 40 minutes. The end of module questions give me the revision i need to make sure it sunk in. I’m pleased with what I have achieved on these courses and would recommend them.
