A significant proportion of the UK food manufacturing sector is made up of those for whom English is not their first language. In a highly regulated environment this can throw up challenges for food businesses in ensuring that all their manufacturing and processing operatives are fully trained to meet food safety compliance standards.

To meet these challenges FDQ has developed the Food Safety Certificate suite. A range of endorsed programmes which comes with a selection of materials to support learning and assessment. Assessment papers are available in a number of the most in demand languages:

These programmes provide a fantastic alternative to regulated food safety qualifications. Enabling businesses and learning providers to train and assess workers to the required standards, whilst taking into account foreign language needs.

Food safety in foreign languages

These programmes are designed for those learners who are working in, or preparing to work in food manufacturing or in food supply chain operative roles where English is not their first language. The programmes are available to be assessed in seven popular foreign languages.

The aim of these food safety programmes is to assess underpinning knowledge to recognised National Occupational Standards (NOS).
