Food Hygiene is governed by a large number of laws that relate to specific areas of food e.g.meat, dairy, etc.
Schools are covered by the Food Safety Act - Paragraph 23 is below
23. The Act does not in itself cover hygiene, on which there is separate legislation made using the powers given under the Act, or food prepared in the home for domestic purposes. It does cover food prepared by childminders in their homes for other people's children and extends to activities such as preparation of food in canteens, clubs, schools, hospitals, institutions and public and local authorities.

Delegates need to have completed a Basic Food Hygiene course in the last 5 years and need to bring a photocopy of the certificate for my records. I am an administrator for an on-line Basic Food Hygiene which can be completed at home in about 4 hours, at your convenience. You need a pair of headphones or speakers attached to your computer. There is also no additional charge for the certificate.
Delegates need to bring a sample page from a scheme of work illustrating Health and Safety issues, or it can be forwarded after the course, if a scheme of work needs to be updated in line with DATA standards.
