The Level 2 & 3 Food Hygiene courses, accredited by City & Guilds, are designed to provide an individual or an organisation with the very latest food safety and hygiene training, while the Food Allergy training gives you insight into what food can trigger allergic reactions in some consumers.
When working in catering or hospitality, you need to have a high standard of food safety and hygiene training in order to fulfil your role and protect both consumers and other staff members. Undertaking both Level 2 and Level 3 Food Safety & Hygiene training means you have covered a comprehensive level of training which includes modules on cleaning and disinfecting equipment, safe food preparation and storage, and common pest control. Knowing how food allergies factor into the different facets of the food industry is also incredibly useful, helping you to meet obligations set out by EU food regulations.
This Level 2 & 3 Food Safety and Hygiene and Food Allergy training course satisfies a food handler’s legal obligation to undertake appropriate food safety training and include relevant material for managers and supervisors to supplement this. A sound knowledge of the latest food safety principles will also improve the quality of your product or service whether you’re a self-employed caterer, a chef, a waiter, or any other role within the catering industry.
The material is provided in an interactive format that is designed to be engaging and accessible. A basic knowledge of food hygiene will mean learners progress quickly, but the course is designed for anyone working in the service or hospitality sectors and should be suitable for any staff member to give them the knowledge needed to work effectively and safely.
All our courses are accredited by CPD. The certificates, awarded upon successful completion, can be used to log your hours against.
This training pack usually takes between 11-12 hours each to complete, depending on the speed of learning. Learners do not have to complete all the training in one session as progress is recorded throughout and the training can be paused and resumed in our learning management system at any time.
This training pack is aimed at anyone working in a food environment such as a café, restaurant, guest house or school and wishes to deepen their knowledge on food allergies to keep their customers safe.

If you’re working in the hospitality or service industry, you will need to comply with the latest food and hygiene regulations. This Level 2 & 3 Food Safety and Hygiene course is designed to help you comply with EU Regulation 852/2004, which requires food businesses to ensure that any employee who handles food is supervised, instructed and trained in food hygiene in a way that is appropriate for the work they do. It is recommended that all food premises should have at least one person trained to Level 3 in food hygiene and safety - particularly if they are in charge of other staff and are responsible for the training of those staff.
