Food allergies now affect 1 in 20 children and 2 in 100 adults in Australia. For someone with food allergies, even a trace of their allergen could be deadly.

Recent studies reveal most severe food-related emergencies occur while eating out.

It’s critical that your front-of-house staff are fully aware of the serious risk food allergies pose.

Allara Learning’s new online food allergy awareness course has been specifically designed for front-of-house staff working in the Australian food service industry. Staff will learn how to:

  • Communicate with customers and kitchen staff regarding food allergies
  • Identify and avoid cross contamination risk
  • Recognise the signs and symptoms of allergic reactions (including anaphylaxis).
  • Respond to a food allergy emergency

The course includes realistic scenario-based activities to help improve learners’ engagement and understanding of core concepts.

The course is fully responsive, providing an optimal viewing experience across a wide range of devices from mobile phones to desktop computer monitors.

Interactive courses

With traditional eLearning you get lots and lots of information. Maybe a few interactive activities. Then there are a bunch of questions at the end. This type of eLearning is essentially replicating the teaching process.

Allara Learning's interactive courses aim to replicate the learning process. This process helps create more engaging and effective courses - not just a pass mark. Learners are put into an interactive environment where they can:

  • experiment
  • find information
  • make decisions
  • think critically
  • get feedback as they move along
