Get Cooking! is a registered Community Interest Company that aims to make cooking classes accessible as far as possible. In terms of wheelchair access customers will be able to access the toilet and three of the kitchen worktops with integrated hobs which are adjustable. We also have a kitchen sink that can be lowered to wheelchair height.
Get Cooking! takes its responsibilities seriously in gathering, storing and sharing personal information of customers attending classes. We recognise our legal obligation to protect customer information under the Data Protection 1998 Act. We are currently registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
Get Cooking! undertakes regular risk assessment of the training kitchen including the kitchen equipment used and food safety. Any Get Cooking! teachers have to demonstrate they have undertaken Level 2 Award in Food Safety in Catering.
Recipes for courses are carefully planned in advance and classes always run with a minimum of 2 workers and an absolute maximum of 10 customers. Fire registers are kept and customers are reminded how to exit the building should the alarm sound or fire break out. Customers are initially asked to sign in and out of the building to comply with
Health and Safety regulations.
In order to make our classes a safe and comfortable experience for all, we ask that customers do not attend classes under the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol and customers behave in a way that is respectful and safe to others. Those in breach will be asked to leave and possibly forfeit the course fee.
Finally customers will not normally be refunded course fees, however they have a right to withdraw course applications within 14 days of booking. In these circumstances a written statement would be required- within this time period- in order for us to process a refund.
