National Healthy School Canteens

Participant’s Workbook

Formal Assessment: Vocational Education and Training (VET)

Page last updated: 23 October 2013

Following the NHSC workshop, it is hoped you will review and update existing menus and recipes in your canteen to ensure they meet the NHSC guidelines.

To assist you with this process, a Workplace Implementation Project (the Project) has been developed (Appendix 1). The Project provides a framework and checklist to guide you through the implementation process.

It also allows you to document the skills you have already demonstrated over many years, as well as the new skills you have gained as a result of participating in the NHSC workshop.

An additional benefit is the option of obtaining a nationally recognised Statement of Attainment for the unit of competency SITHCCC035A Develop menus to meet special dietary and cultural needs if the evidence you supply meets the assessment requirements for that unit. The details for that unit of competency are included in the Project (Appendix 1).

Please note that if you wish to gain a Statement of Attainment for the unit you will need to contact a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) accredited to issue a Statement of Attainment for that unit. You will also need to meet that organisation’s assessment requirements.

A Statement of Attainment issued by an RTO is recognised nationally and contributes to several qualifications, including the Certificate III in Hospitality (Catering Operations), Certificate III in Hospitality (Commercial Cookery) and Certificate IV in Hospitality (Commercial Cookery).

Further information about SITHCCC035A Develop menus to meet special dietary and cultural needs can be found at the National Training Information Service website.
