Allergens should be mentioned on labels or menus. But mistakes can happen, and labels can be misread. So, it’s important to know which food types contain allergens, because they could cause serious harm if they’re given to a person with an allergy when all they wanted was a bit of cake.
It’s thought that one in four people suffer with an allergy of some kind. Adults with allergies often know what they’re allergic to, and how to avoid allergens, but often, children don’t. So, it’s essential for teachers, carers, parents, and anyone in charge of children or vulnerable adults that suffer from food allergies, to know what to look out for, and what to do in an emergency.
This course will guide you through the 14 most common food allergies and where you will find the allergens that cause them. You’ll also learn about the different reactions associated with food allergies, the difference between a mild and severe reaction, and what to do if you think someone is suffering a severe anaphylactic reaction. It’s also got a handy checklist, to make sure you can safely feed allergy sufferers.
We all know someone with a food allergy, don’t we? Those ‘free from’ aisles in the supermarket are getting bigger every week. But the fact is, people aren’t just being fussy eaters. Food allergies are a real problem – one that has existed for a long time, but is only recently being properly diagnosed. Thankfully, this course has all the information you need.
Having a good understanding of allergens is vital in protecting the people you’re feeding. But there’s a lot to remember. So, we decided that this course needed to be manageable, and have a theme to make it memorable, because one of the best memory aids is storytelling. Dracula is our theme of choice, because even though he might be a fearless creature of darkness, he’s got a pretty severe allergy to sunlight!
By dividing the course into sections using splash screens, we’ve created a user-led interactive experience that can be viewed in any order, and at a comfortable pace for the learner, to help them retain the important facts in the course. And, alongside the course, our blended learning contains a handy allergy fact-pack to act as a reminder for learners whenever they need it.
This course also has an assessment at the end which allows learners to test their understanding and helps businesses demonstrate a level of competence in the topic.
With a bank of questions learners will get randomised assessments which means if people do fail the assessment, they aren't faced with the same quiz again; after all you want to test learners knowledge and not their ability to remember the right button to press second time around.
Everyone has the right to learn and learner need can vary demanding on environment or disabilities. This course comes with transcripts so people have text options for an media, subtitles for all videos and is screen reader friendly with alternative text.
We take a number of steps to ensure visuals and navigation is easy for your people. For more information on the steps we take for accessibility check out how we make our courses.
