HABC and the Food for Life Partnership have worked together to develop a Level 1 National Award in Food Safety qualification aimed at Key Stage 3 in schools. The qualification has been developed in consultation with key food technology teachers to be specific for both the domestic and educational setting, whilst also complementing the food technology curriculum.
This is a nationally recognised qualification and is assessed by a multiple-choice question paper. It is linked directly to the food technology curriculum for pupils. This qualification will raise the visibility of food technology departments, increase knowledge of food safety an hygiene that can also be used in the home and will build pupil self-esteem and improve life skills.
This 12 guided learning hour qualification enables universal access to a certificated course, which will go a long way to ensuring that an understanding of food safety is instilled in pupils at a young age.
