Observer Report

Who can sign off my practical assessment? 

Your practical assessment must be completed by someone who is currently working in the food industry so can be completed by someone in the industry:

  • you are currently working with, or
  • you have previously worked with (within the last 12 months), or
  • you have volunteered with.

Please note:  the person who completes and signs off your practical assessment must see you do everything listed on the practical assessment on three separate occasions.

If you’re not working at the moment, another way is to volunteer for a few shifts with a charity, community organisation or other food business. Many places are happy to have volunteers help out in return for completing the practical assessment. Check out your local council for more information.

Not Working In The Food Industry?

Not working in the food industry? 

Don’t stress, our food safety courses can be completed by anyone regardless of prior experience.

What about my practical assessment?

We understand it can be difficult when you’re new to the industry to have the practical assessment filled out, so there are a few options:

  1. If you have worked in the food industry before, then you can have a past manager or co-worker complete the assessment.  They don’t need to be a chef or a trained food safety supervisor. It can be anyone currently employed in the food industry (with a minimum of 12 months experience).
  2. If you have a friend or family member employed in the food industry, they can also sign off on your practical assessment. Again, it doesn’t need to be a qualified chef or food safety supervisor, It can be anyone currently employed in the food industry (with a minimum of 12 months experience).
  3. You can also speak to your local council and ask for a list of food-based charities that you can volunteer for. Many of these organisations deal with food and any regular volunteer is able to sign off on your practical assessment.

Make sure that the person who is completing your practical assessment, observes you doing everything listed on the report on three separate occasions.
