Who is the ORAL Practical Training course for?

The ORAL Practical Training course is for anyone who is involved with making foods for people with dysphagia using the IDDSI Framework. It is the perfect course for people at home or in healthcare catering environments.

Do I have to be able to cook to attend the course?

You do not need to be a good cook to attend this course. The practical aspects of the course are for safely changing the textures of foods for the IDDSI Framework not how to cook food. We provide all the food that is used on the day, pre-cooked and ready for transforming into dysphagia meals.

What do I need to do before I can take a place on a practical course?

All our practical courses are fully hand’s on. This means learners must already have competency and an understanding of dysphagia, IDDSI and our ORAL approach. This is why we ask that all learners have already completed our Online Dysphagia Diets for IDDSI course first.

How much is the ORAL Practical Training course?

The course is £350 per learner. Single learners can join scheduled sessions and organisations can request bespoke training dates for a minimum of 10 learners.

What do I get for the course price?

Included in the price of the course is a full day in the kitchen with expert chefs from Oak House Kitchen, the course manual, all ingredients and resources required for the training course, and a certificate of completion.
