It is estimated that 1 in 10 people will suffer from food poisoning this year. This means millions of people in the UK will become sick due to the food that they eat.

In many cases, outbreaks of food poisoning can be traced back to failures of management and a lack of supervision of people and processes.

When you consider that consumers spend £219 billion a year on food and drink, and that the sector employs nearly 4 million people, its no wonder food safety has never been higher on the public’s agenda.

Highfield’s Food Safety Level 3 training course is ideal for supervisors and managers working in a catering environment with responsibility for food hygiene. This includes those working in restaurants, cafes, hotels, bars, fast-food outlets, takeaways, mobile food trucks, kitchens, hospitals, schools and colleges.

This online food safety training course from Highfield e-learning is designed for owners, managers and supervisors within a food business.

Is this training course right for me?

Highfield’s Food Safety Level 3 online training course is designed for supervisors and managers with responsibility for food safety.

It is ideal for those supervising or managing food safety in a catering environment, but is equally useful for those working within food manufacturing.  

It is also an ideal training course for those who have gained a good understanding of food hygiene while working as food handlers and are looking to make the step up to supervisory or management positions.

If you are a food handler working within a catering business below the level of supervisor or manager, we would recommend our Food Safety Level 2 e-learning course.

If you work within a food manufacturing environment below the level of supervisor or manager, we offer a dedicated training programme, the Food Safety in Manufacturing Level 2 course. This online training course is designed specifically with the differences between manufacturing and catering food businesses in mind.

If you don’t directly handle food, or only work with low-risk foods, you may consider the Food Safety Level 1 e-learning course.

Will my certificate be accepted by environmental health officers?

On successful completion of this online food safety training, you will receive a certificate of completion from Highfield e-learning.  

The certificate is accepted by many EHOs as evidence that you have been trained to the appropriate level. 

Accreditation

This course is accredited by Highfield Qualifications, the UK’s leading provider of regulated food safety qualifications.

The course is also accredited by the CPD Certification Service as meeting the standards of the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) guidelines.

Course duration

The course will typically take 9 to 14 hours to complete, however as this food safety training is hosted online, learners can complete each module at a time and pace to suit them.

Our LMS provides comprehensive reports, including progress reports, so that trainers or managers can ensure the course is completed to suit training or business needs.

Entry requirements

There are no prerequisites to study this course, though an understanding of principles of food safety will be beneficial.

Test and certification

The course is assessed by multiple-choice questions at the end of the course. Learners must score 100% in order to pass.

If the learner does not achieve 100% first time, they will be taken back to review the module with which they have struggled. They can then retry the multiple-choice questions as many times as necessary to pass the course.

Please note: this course does not provide a qualification itself but does meet mandatory training requirements. If you wish to achieve a recognised level 3 food safety qualification you must sit an exam with a recognised training provider (you can still use the e-learning as the knowledge element of the training). Find a training provider here.

You will receive an electronic copy of your certificate immediately on completion of the course. This certificate, which is the equivalent of the old basic food hygiene certificate, may be printed and used as evidence that you have been trained in food hygiene to the appropriate level.
