Unit code: SITHCCC003 | Study level: TAFE
Footscray Nicholson
SITXFSA001 - Use hygienic practices for food safety
(Or equivalent to be determined by unit coordinator)


This unit describes the performance outcomes, skills and knowledge required to prepare and present a variety of sandwiches in a hospitality or catering organisation, such as cafes, kiosks, canteens and cafeterias, or to organisations where catering forms only a small part of the business.

The unit applies to operational personnel who make pre-prepared and on demand sandwiches according to customer requests. Sandwiches may be classical or modern, hot or cold, of varying cultural and ethnic origins and use a variety of fillings and types of bread.  It applies to individuals who work with very little independence and under close supervision. They follow predefined organisational procedures and report any discrepancies to a higher level staff member for action.
