safety certificates

Discussion in 'Design and technology' started by stitchandcook, Feb 19, 2011.

  1. I am returning to teach both Food and Textiles, K3& K4. I need certifictes for health and safety/ hygiene. Please would some nice person tell me exactly which certificates I need. Is the type of hygiene certificate used in the catering industry suitable or does it have to be teaching related? What type of certificate do I need for textiles? :)

  3. I don't think you need a safety certificate to teach Textiles. Food, it advised you have level 2 Hygiene certificate which lasts for 5 years. This info is off the DATA website and relates to their training.

    This course is aimed at Secondary teachers who teach Food Technology. It is crucial that teachers and support staff can identify the hazards and assess the risks, and determine how to remove or control the risks within an educational environment. The Health and Safety Training Standards and the D&T Associations Health & Safety Accreditation Scheme have been introduced to provide a sound professional framework so that staff can feel confident in carrying out their work in a professional manner, and be able to show evidence of meeting that requirement. This course fulfils OFSTED' s 'safeguarding' criteria including training and risk assessments for food technology lessons.
    Our qualified trainer will enable you to achieve specialist food health and safety accreditation and the level 2 food safety certificate in one day. Accreditation lasts for 5 years.
     
  4. Our trainers have told us we need to renew our food hygiene certificates every 3 years so we do.
    DATA trainers run a H and S certificate for textiles teachers too- ours did it last year and everyone should do the CORE but I gather there are plenty fo schools who do not do this due to the cost.
     
  5. Food & Textile factory identificates for health/ safety hygiene, which would exactly which certificates I need at type of hygiene condition, which used in catering service at the best.

    Contact your local council, you want the Environmental Health people, they run the courses and can advise as to where you can do one.
