Food Hygiene training in West Sussex

Open food hygiene courses now being run in Sussex

Ford Training is now running Level 2 Award in Food Safety courses in Lancing, West Sussex. This one day course is accredited by CIEH, and is the equivalent of the “Basic Food Hygiene” certificate, or the “Foundation Food Hygiene”. The course is suitable for food handlers that are handling, storing or preparing open or high-risk food.

We are offering places on this one day course for just £60.00 per person + vat. The course fee is “all-inclusive”; it includes lunch, tea & coffee, “The food hygiene handbook”, and the exam fee.  

After running in-house training on-site for the last 8 years, we are now offering open Level 2 Award in Food Safety courses in West Sussex! Check out our testimonials from previous clients and candidates: Ford Training: About Us. After repeated enquiries about local open courses being run, we are now running monthly food hygiene courses in Lancing, West Sussex.

There seems to be a lack of good quality, accessible open courses being run in the local area – which seems to link with the amount of people now switching to on-line training. However as mentioned in a previous blog, on-line training does not replace the need for interactive training, and there are, in my view, question marks over how effective on-line training may be. (see previous blog on on-line training)

However cheap it may appear in the short term (a “Level 2” food safety course on-line can be found for as low as £20 – surely not comparable with a one day food hygiene course that is made relevant to the candidates?), on-line training does not seem to give the same level of understanding as face to face training with the opportunity for discussion!

Our open courses offer a mix of behind the scenes video clips, pest samples, quizzes and card games, whilst covering the syllabus for the course in a fun and engaging way. Our philosophy is; why use a power-point slide of text for something that can be demonstrated / discussed / watched on a video!

Our courses are run by trainers who are registered with the CIEH and HABC, who have a strong background in catering. My background is in kitchen management and so our courses are brought to life with real examples of good and bad practice.

We are still, of course, offering in-house training at your premises at a time to suit you. For a quote for an in-house course, please complete our booking enquiry form
