Food safety, hygiene and the prevention of contamination are key factors in the manufacture and production of food and in food service. (Those responsible for these areas are required to be trained to manage the situation.) Those responsible for the management of food operation need to be trained to a level that enables them to demonstrate their competency.Learn more
The supervision of people who are handling and producing food is a responsible task. It is essential that the supervisor identify and prevent or control any potential hazards and are equipped to effectively manage food handlers on safety issues. This course provides the key information on how to achieve and maintain good standards of food safety.Learn more
The Foundation Degree (FdEng) provides a solid foundation in general engineering science and mathematics, with specialisms in mechanical, electrical and manufacturing engineering.
Validated by Sheffield Hallam University, this two-year programme has been designed in consultation with a number of employers who have expressed a need for engineering technicians to have specialist knowledge and an appreciation of the challenges across the various engineering disciplines.
HACCP systems and many prerequisite programmes must be validated prior to implementation to obtain evidence that safe food can be provided. After implementation, verification activities are needed to provide evidence that HACCP and the prerequisites are actually effective and being complied with.Learn more
The Higher Apprenticeship provides a solid foundation in engineering under the auspices of our Higher Education provision. It enables you to progress from A-level qualifications or a Level 3 programme and offers specialisms in a variety of engineering disciplines such as Design, Manufacturing, Mechanical or Electrical.Learn more
This Higher Education Programme was developed in partnership with the Food and Drink industry and Sheffield Hallam University, with expected progression to Sheffield Hallam’s Degree qualifications in Food and Drink Engineering.
The HNC and HND courses are run on a part-time basis over 18 months. The total duration for the HND is three years. Attendance is for one day per week including possible twilight sessions. You will also need to allow additional time for independent study and research.
