Food Safety in the Outdoors

Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering

The Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering has been designed to address the food safety needs of the catering and hospitality sector.

As Forest School Leaders, Children`s workers, Scouts, Guides, voluntary helpers, food handlers, employee`s etc. this training is good for you as you have a legal responsibility to keep your children and young people safe when preparing food. The qualification is also designed to give all food workers an appreciation of good food hygiene practice – but people with general interest are all welcome!

The training is run by Sarah Blake of Blake Training, but held at a venue at the Woodland Play Park, which is situated near Crowcombe, in Somerset. Sarah who has been training in food safety for 30 years and specialises in `Food Safety in the Outdoors` with a programme she developed initially with Lantra Awards.  As well as the recognised Qualsafe Level 2 qualification certificate, you will also receive a certificate of attendance which personalises your accreditation even more with emphasis on cooking outdoors in the woodland environment demonstrating your training is appropriate to outdoor cooking. 

An outline of the programme includes:  

  • Importance of Food Safety in the woods (HACCP)
  • Legal requirements
  • Microbes - Where are they lurking?
  • Illnesses linked to food and the outdoors
  • Hygiene control, temperature control, storage, handling, preparation, cooking, equipment…
  • Personal Hygiene
  • Food safety control - relevant to you!
  • Design your Hazard Analysis
  • Design your food safety guidelines

A multiple choice test will conclude at the end of the course with successful completion resulting in a nationally recognised qualification.  The aim of the day is to learn about food hygiene in a fun, interactive manner - all outdoors in the woodland and cooking your lunch over the camp fire too - what a great day!
