The Level 2 Award in Food Safety for Manufacturing (QCF) is a qualification aimed at at food handlers working in a manufacturing environment.
The qualification is intended for learners already working in manufacturing and those who are preparing to work in the industry. Learners gaining this qualification will know that food safety is the responsibility of everyone involved in the storage, preparation, processing, packing and handling of food.
Its topics are regarded by the Foods Standards Agency as being important to maintaining good practice in the production of safe food.
There are no prerequisites for this qualification although it is advised that learners have a minimum of Level 1 in English and Maths or equivalent. Qualification Structure
This qualification is made up of one mandatory unit, the details of which are included at the end of this specification. Learners must successfully complete the assessment for the unit to achieve the qualification. The qualification can be taken as a free standing qualification or as part of a wider programme of training.

The learner can:
2. Understand the application and monitoring of good hygiene practice

This qualification is assessed through a 60-question multiple-choice question examination. The duration of the examination is 2 hours. Successful learners must achieve a score of at least 40 out of 60 in order to pass. Learners will receive a Merit if they achieve 50 out of 60. Following the assessment, a list of results will be provided to the centre contacts stating whether learners have passed or failed. Certificates for those who are successful will be dispatched for distribution by the centre contacts.
All learners must be instructed to bring photographic identification to the assessment to be checked by the invigilator/assessor. This instruction should be given ahead of the course/assessment when the learner registers and/or with any pre-course materials. It is the responsibility of the centre to have systems in place to ensure that the person taking an examination/assessment is indeed the person they are purporting to be. All centres are therefore required to ensure that each learner’s photographic identification is checked before they are allowed to undertake the examination/assessment and write the type of photo identification provided by each learner on the Learner List under “Identification Provided”.
HABC will accept the following as proof of a learner’s identity:
