Course Summary

Severe allergic reactions to food are still all too common in the UK. With around 4% of the population suffering from a food allergy, it’s crucial that anyone working in the food industry receives proper training.

In addition, legislation introduced in 2014 means businesses need to provide allergy information on all foods sold unpackaged. Our Introduction to Allergens e-learning course has been approved by Allergy UK as meeting the standards required to become a part of the Allergy Aware Scheme. It is ideal for businesses looking to ensure they and their staff are compliant with the legislation.

Who should take this course?

Anyone responsible for the purchase, delivery, production and serving of food in the catering industry. The course can also be used as part of the on-programme element of the new apprenticeship standards, and can support the knowledge, skills and behaviours apprentices need to effectively integrate into the workplace.

How long does the course take?

Most trainees will complete the course in 2 – 3 hours.

How is the course assessed and accredited?

The course provides the teaching and materials necessary for CPD and training purposes. Multiple-choice questions are provided so that learners can test their knowledge and understanding. However, please note that this is not the same as accreditation.

If a learner wishes to accredit this learning, he/she will need to take an examination with the appropriate board and be supervised remotely. These services are available from IBA UK at a reasonable rate – please contact us for details.
