eLearning provider, DeltaNet International International, has partnered with Loughborough College to create an engaging online food safety course for its students. 

Filmed on location at Loughborough College’s industry standard commercial kitchen and attached Radmoor Restaurant, the collaborative project will highlight important working practices and food hygiene legislation at Levels 2 and 3. It will be used by students studying hospitality and catering at the College, as well as by DeltaNet’s clients in sectors such as catering, healthcare, and food manufacturing.

The new course will address an industry-wide need for good quality, engaging content in the subject of food safety, moving it from traditional textbooks to online teaching and learning at Loughborough College. 

Darren Creed, chef lecturer and Hospitality and Catering lead at Loughborough College, said:

“We expect the new course to be a hit with our students.

“It combines multi-media design with scenarios and challenges faced by real, working kitchens, allowing students to learn how best working practices apply in real life.”

To boost engagement levels, the course will include gamified challenges, additional digital resources and checklists, and video scenarios captured at the College.

It’s hoped that the course enhancements will benefit students on site as well as distance learners, such as those who study part-time whilst working. 

Darren Hockley, MD at DeltaNet International, said:

“We’re proud to partner with a local educational institution on this exciting project. The collaboration will leverage the world class expertise and facilities right on our doorstep.

“Together, we have developed a fresh approach to food safety training that will ensure students in the sector are well equipped to enter the workplace.”
