This basically means that as Baking members of LUU BakingSoc we all need to prove we can safely prepare food for others to enjoy. If somebody fell ill after eating one of our member’s bakes the Union and the Society would be affected.
This is particularly relevant as Tasting members pay £1 for meetings; therefore our Bakers are technically generating a profit for the society through their bakes. In effect they are caterers!
The training is really important for anybody who’s job involves working with food, and shows that you have achieved an additional qualification. It also shows that you have been an active member of a university society- something that is always good to put in the hobbies/interests section of your CV!
1. Upon paying for your Bakers membership please email firstname.lastname@example.org. She is our point of contact with the company who provide the training, and will send you you’re personal username and password.
2. Once she sends you your login details, you need to go to the website: http://allsafe.org.uk/elearning/ and it will bring up a page that looks like this…
Now you have finished reading the booklet, the link for the exam should look like the picture. If it doesn’t show up as a link then refresh the page and it will show up in red! NB: this weird code (highlighted in purple) is the passcode thing you will need just before you start the exam. Each one is unique so before you click on the link for the exam make a note of it or copy and paste it into a word document or something. Click on the link highlighted in green and away you go to the next page…
9. Your certificate can take up to a week to be delivered to the university. A.Rooney will contact you again when it arrives. You can collect it from Student Activities.
Once you have your certificate please either email a copy to email@example.com, or bring it to the next meeting you attend so we can make a copy and mark you as able to bake!
I hope that explains everything clearly; a big thank you to our previous Secretary Alice for putting together these instructions.
Best wishes, BakingSoc x
