About this Student Logbook

This Student Logbook is where you will record evidence of the knowledge and skills you have developed during your training for this unit. It also serves as a handy reference guide on what you need to do during your assessment and how you should go about doing it.

Completing your reflective journal

You are expected to complete a reflective report for each time that you complete a cooking task which is relevant for assessment of this unit. Templates have been provided in the Student Assessment Guide for this unit. Each report follows a similar format – it begins with a series of questions and then asks you to reflect on your experiences. Try to think about the highlights of each time that you prepare a dish for a person who has special dietary needs when you are writing your reflection. You might also find the following questions useful:

·         What skills and techniques did I use?

·         What policies and procedures did I follow?

·         How did I ensure efficiency, safety and quality?

·         How did I ensure that my dishes met quality standards?

·         What did I learn during the service and how might I apply it in future?

·         What might I do differently next time?

At the end of each template, you will find a supervisor endorsement.

Supervisor declaration

Your workplace supervisor’s feedback forms an important part of the assessment process and it is essential you have your supervisor complete their section of each of your reflective journals and fill in the supervisor declaration after the summary section. Keep in mind that, if you are completing your assessment in your RTO’s training kitchen, your trainer will be your workplace supervisor and should endorse your journal. Without their endorsement, your Logbook will be incomplete and it is likely to be returned to you for resubmission.

Logbook summary

There are a number of requirements you must fulfil within your assessment process, so a Logbook Summary has been provided. Make sure you keep this section up to date – it will help you keep track of any outstanding requirements.

What do I need to demonstrate?

o    liaising with other people to clarify the customer’s requirements

o    recognising the potential health consequences of failing to meet dietary requirements of customers

o    accessing special dietary recipes

o    using appropriate equipment, preparation and cooking techniques for special dietary requirements and to retain optimum nutritional values

·         presenting prepared food:

In addition to demonstrating the above skills and knowledge, you must fulfil some additional criteria. You must:

·         Follow recipes to prepare six different dishes that cater to customers with different dietary requests, including at least one of each of the following:

o    food restrictions

Tips for completing this logbook

·         Read through your logbook before you get started and make sure that you understand what you need to do. If you are unsure, speak to your assessor and/or workplace supervisor.

·         Stay up to date! Complete a logbook entry at the end of each service period and ask your supervisor to do the same. Providing organised, complete evidence forms part of your assessment.

·         Stay in touch with your assessor. Ask questions, raise issues, check in, communicate.

Most importantly, ask for help if you are having trouble!
