About the Course

Course Duration: 20m (approx) online training + self-directed learning and activities + final assessment.

As per section 100 of the Children and Families Act 2014, all schools have a legal obligation to support their pupils with any medical conditions, including food allergies. Schools must comply with their regulatory requirements, including Natasha’s Law, and provide students with allergen ingredients’ information for the food they serve.

Our Essential CPD Course in food allergies provides you and your staff with the core content you need to ensure you are protecting your students from food-related allergic reactions. Delivered in high-quality video CPD format that has been skilfully organised for busy workloads and is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere, our food allergy awareness training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and most time-efficient manner.

Delivered by qualified Emergency Ambulance Medic, Samantha Kendall, this course has been divided into four easy-to-digest modules and contains links to further learning, resources, and case studies. It also has an assessment test at the end to help you evidence your compliance.
