Part of your course needs to take place in an operational food preparation environment.


You are required to complete a minimum of 24 hours in your current food retail workplace where you will be assessed on how well you demonstrate your skills.


While in the workplace you will be assessed in two ways:

1. Video Assessment

You can EITHER upload individual videos of you performing the required tasks in the workplace, OR;

You can demonstrate the required tasks directly to an assessor via a live video conference while you are in the workplace (approx. 30-45 mins).


2. Third-Party Observation Report

As part of the assessment process, you, the student, are required to work a minimum of 24 hours in your current food retail workplace. You must submit a completed third-party report from your workplace supervisor or suitable observer.  This report will provide evidence of practical skills.


The workplace supervisor or observer is required to witness you perform each of the required tasks in a suitable retail environment over the course a minimum of three 8-hour work shifts or however many shifts required to make up a total of 24 hours, then record their observations on the form. 


The form then needs to be signed by both you and the workplace supervisor then submitted for assessment. 


As part of 5 Star Hospitality Training’s commitment to providing quality training, observers may be contacted by our trainer/assessors to verify that the information provided is true and correct.


Additionally, if the trainer/assessors have any questions about any of the information supplied they will contact the student directly to clarify before a statement of attainment is issued.
