Educators’ Workshop - Does your syllabus deliver for food safety and food law?
November 16th - 16th
Time: 9am - 2pm
Location: The Gibson Hotel, Point Square, Dublin 1
This FREE half-day workshop is targeted at lecturers and staff responsible for the curriculum development of food related courses provided by State-funded Higher Education (HE) and Further Education (FET) institutes.
The Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) protects consumers by leading a collaborative food safety community to continuously raise food standards and create a culture of excellence.
Graduates from State-funded Higher Education (HE) and Further Education (FET) courses often embark on a career in the food industry or food regulation. The food industry needs graduates who are knowledgeable and skilled in food legislation. All food businesses need to comply with food law and their staff must be trained commensurate with their work activity. This workshop will assist HE and FET providers in strengthening their curricula by identifying how the FSAI can support them with the provision of up-to-date information around food safety and food authenticity.
The agenda includes an introduction to the FSAI and the work we do. The morning will be opened by our CEO, Dr Pamela Byrne and we will also be joined by Prof. Patrick Wall, a former CEO of the FSAI and now Associate Professor of Public Health in University College Dublin’s School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Population Sciences. The two workshop sessions will provide an opportunity to discuss the priorities for food safety and food law in your courses, and explore the way we can work together to provide the best up-to-date information and science around food safety and food authenticity.
On conclusion of the workshop, participants will have an opportunity to discuss their own unique challenges via an open-floor Q&A session.
Please note: This workshop is NOT intended for food industry personnel or food training trainers/consultants.
