Ensure food safety practices are

followed in the preparation and

serving of food and drink

Learning outcomes
On completion of this unit you will:
1. Be able to ensure food safety practices are
followed in the preparation and serving of food and drink
2. Understand how to ensure food safety
practices are followed in the preparation and serving of food and drink
Evidence requirements
1. Environment
Evidence for this unit should be gathered within the workplace, however, you may be assessed within an approved realistic working environment (RWE) that meets People 1st’s criteria.
2. Simulation
Simulation is allowed for outcomes 1f, 1g, 1h and 1i, if no naturally occurring evidence is available.

You need to meet the same standard on a regular and consistent basis. Separating the assessments by a period of at least two weeks is recommended as competence must be demonstrated on a consistent and regular basis.
4. Knowledge outcomes
There must be evidence that you possess all the knowledge and understanding listed in the Knowledge section of this unit. In most cases this can be done by professional discussion and/or oral questioning. Other methods, such as projects, assignments and/or reflective accounts may also be used.
5. Tutor/Assessor guidance
You will be guided by your tutor/assessor on how to achieve learning outcomes in this unit. All outcomes must be achieved.
6. External paper
There is no external paper for this unit.

3. Observation outcomes
Competent performance of Observation outcomes must be demonstrated on at least two occasions. Assessor observations, witness testimonies and products of work are likely to be the most appropriate sources of performance evidence. Professional discussion may be used as supplementary evidence for those criteria that do not naturally occur.

Assessed observations should not be carried out on the same day for the same learning outcome. There should be sufficient time between assessments for reflection and personal development.

Achieving observations and range

Achieving observation outcomes
Your assessor will observe your performance of practical tasks. The minimum number of competent observations required is indicated in the Evidence requirements section of this unit.
Criteria may not always naturally occur during a practical observation. In such instances you will be asked questions to demonstrate your competence in this area. Your assessor will document the criteria that have been achieved through professional discussion and/or oral questioning. This evidence will be recorded by your assessor in written form or by other appropriate means.
Your assessor will sign off a learning outcome when all criteria have been competently achieved.

Guidance for tutors and assessors
Tutors and assessors must refer to the document(s) listed below, prior to delivering this unit. Document(s) can be downloaded from http://www.people1st.co.uk:
• Sector Assessment Strategy for competence based units of assessment and qualifications

Achieving range
There is no range section that applies to this unit.

Developing knowledge
Achieving knowledge outcomes
You will be guided by your tutor and assessor on the evidence that needs to be produced. Your knowledge and understanding will be assessed using the assessment methods listed below*:
• Projects • Observed work • Witness statements • Audio-visual media • Evidence of prior learning or attainment • Written questions • Oral questions • Assignments • Case studies • Professional discussion
Where applicable your assessor will integrate knowledge outcomes into practical observations through professional discussion and/or oral questioning.
When a criterion has been orally questioned and achieved, your assessor will record this evidence in written form or by other appropriate means. There is no need for you to produce additional evidence as this criterion has already been achieved.
Some knowledge and understanding outcomes may require you to show that you know and understand how to do something. If you have practical evidence from your own work that meets knowledge criteria, then there is no requirement for you to be questioned again on the same topic.

*This is not an exhaustive list.
