    Red face Re: Food Hygiene Course

    hello,

    Just had a look at ukvc website. the course you are talking about is about £30 ! Is that right? Is it cheaper for childminder? do they do discount if I buy 3 or 4 courses with them?
    thank you

    Yes that is right. As far as I know it is not any cheaper for a childminder and I don't think they do any discounts

    I bought this course a while ago, just done it today (with only 1 wrong answer, yay!) and it gave me a code to get 10% off my next course, which will be handy

    Does it have to be the level 2 course or can it be the cheaper and shorter level one course?

    Level 2 Food Safety & Hygiene for Catering (including City and Guilds Accredited Certificate) at £30

    Level 1 Food Safety and Hygiene at £18

    At the moment it is not compulsory for you to do any course so I suppose it is up to you which you choose to do?

    It depends on your local authority - some say it's a requirement when childminders register as a food business.

    However it's not in the Eyfs or Childcare Registers so what Pauline means is it is not a statutory requirement for Ofsted.

    Hope this clarifies

    Erin i was told on my first aid course that an online course wasnt good enough, i've done it but have you ever had an info from the early years team about a food hygiene course?? i hardly hear about any courses and the last one i would have loved to do but its a weekday

    that drives me nuts so online courses i do better than nothing

    I can understand a first aid course would not be suitable online as you do not get the practical side of using the dummies. Understanding food hygiene is different in my opinion as you don't need to practice on anything
