Getting gluten-free right

Online training for caterers

Welcome to the Coeliac UK online catering training website.

We can help you learn how to cater for the needs of those following a gluten-free diet. Our courses will provide you with the knowledge and confidence you need to deliver great gluten-free food within the boundaries of the law.

We offer three training modules which are tailored to the specific sector you work in; private, education or health. So whether you work with customers, pupils, students or patients our courses are designed to help you. All three courses cover the same content but use relevant sector examples to help make the training more realistic and relevant to your organisation. Content includes:

  • Understanding coeliac disease
  • What people with coeliac disease need
  • Why serve gluten-free
  • The law on gluten-free
  • Managing gluten-free: 7 basic principles of catering gluten-free encompassing:
  1. Choosing and using the right ingredients
  2. Storage
  3. Preparing and cooking gluten-free food
  4. Cleaning and personal hygiene
  5. Communicating with your staff
  6. Serving gluten-free meals – communicating with consumers
  7. Labelling your menu.

The course is interactive, taking around 1.5 hours to complete and can be returned to, as many times as is needed, until completion. It costs £35.00 plus VAT and a Coeliac UK certificate is awarded at the end.
