HABC Accredited Food Safety Level 1 and Cooking in the Curriculum


A practical and inspiring course, helping schools to meet statutory requirements for Cooking and Nutrition within the Design and Technology Curriculum. This course is HABC accredited for Food Safety Level 1.


A recent Ofsted review (Obesity, healthy eating and physical activity in primary schools, 2018) clearly highlights the importance of food education and learning, and the role schools can take in providing children with a solid body of knowledge to make healthy choices. This course will ensure your staff are fully equipped with the essential skills and knowledge to deliver and implement an effective curriculum on Cooking and Nutrition.

The morning session will focus on food safety and how to teach in a safe and hygienic environment, as delegates work towards their Level 1 accreditation. The topics covered in this qualification are essential to the production of safe food. The Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC) Level 1 Award in Food Safety in Catering is recognised internationally.

In the afternoon, delegates will learn practical skills to teach children of all ages how to prepare and cook healthy nutritious recipes in line with the statutory requirements of the curriculum. The course will cover skill progression and ensure delegates are confident to teach a wide range of cooking skills safely, including chopping techniques.

This course is aimed at all primary and secondary school staff (e.g. Design and Technology leaders) and can also be delivered as a bespoke course or full staff training session in your school. Please get in touch with the Health and Wellbeing Service at to arrange your bespoke session.
