DeltaNet International Partners with Loughborough College to Improve Food Safety
Fri, 15 Nov 2019 09:23
We're proud to announce that we're collaborating with Loughborough College to produce our upcoming Food Safety set of eLearning courses. The courses, which are currently in development, are scenario-based and provide practical, modern training for anyone working with food.
The partnership between DeltaNet International and Loughborough College will have benefits on both sides.
Loughborough College have traditionally relied on textbook and classroom training. Our eLearning courses will provide a modern, engaging alternative, complementing the knowledge the students build up whilst studying.
Our courses are written and designed to the best standards, using the most up-to-date techniques and ideas. The Food Safety courses will be no exception.
DeltaNet International have also benefited from the access to Loughborough College's catering facilities. They offer a selection of Hospitality and Catering courses, from their City and Guilds Level 1 Certificate in Culinary and Restaurant Skills to their Foundation Degree in Hospitality Management. All of these courses include practical elements as well as theoretical work.
The College has an industry-standard kitchen and a restaurant, which is run commercially and staffed by its catering students. These facilities have been filmed as part of the Food Safety courses, giving the scenarios in the eLearning course a realistic feeling. Since the scenarios are filmed and acted in genuine industry-level surroundings, they provide an excellent illustration of situations that people working in catering are likely to find themselves in.
As a Loughborough-based company that has grown internationally since we were founded in 1999, we're pleased for the opportunity to partner with a local learning institution that provides such a good service to the people of Loughborough.
Food Safety eLearning
Our Food Safety courses are being designed with learner engagement in mind. Alongside the video scenarios, there are gamified challenges throughout the courses. When they've completed the course, students are given a "food safety rating" that echoes the ones on display in restaurants.
The courses will be available to train students to Levels 2 and 3 in Food Safety, giving them industry-wide recognition of their level of expertise.
The Digital Handbook that comes with the course includes lots of additional knowledge, checklists and resources for learners so they can expand their knowledge even further. This qualifies it as a blended learning solution, combining the best of traditional and modern online learning.
