Food Verifiers Academy
What is the Food Verifiers Academy?
The Academy is a central point – a hub – for food verifiers and evaluators operating under the Food Act 2014.
It supports professional development, collaboration, sharing of expertise, and the building of a stronger professional network.
A range of practical tools available
The Academy gives verifiers and evaluators on-demand access to practical tools including:
- case studies
- common questions and forums
- guidance on performance targets.
It's also useful for managers looking to recruit, manage performance, or provide learning and development for their verifiers.
Who it's for
The Academy is a resource for all food verifiers, evaluators, and their managers. Wherever they work.
What's in the Academy
The Academy will grow as verifiers, evaluators, and managers identify their needs, ask for resources, and contribute content.
These resources are available:
Case Studies Library – find real-life scenarios and suggested discussion points for each situation.
Directories – search for specific technical training providers, commonly-used terms, or acronyms.
Knowledge Hub – explore 2 knowledge 'pathways' – Professional Practice and Technical Practice. Each has FAQs and forums to post questions and share expertise.
Multimedia Resources – find videos, podcasts and on-demand webinar recordings on a range of topics.
