We continue to choose FDQ for their high levels of expertise in food industry qualifications.
This is a 24 hours a day, seven days a week industry which supports all sectors within the UK economy.
According to the UK Commission for Employment and Skills (UKCES), the transport and storage (ie. warehousing) sectors combined employ 1.45 million people. This makes up 5% of total employment within the UK; this is earmarked to grow significantly by 2020.
Businesses operating in the sector cover, air, land and water transport as well as postal and courier and support activities. The sector is dominated by small to medium sized enterprises which demand ever increasing skills and knowledge from their staff, as the businesses respond to the pressures of the modern supply chain.
The FDQ suite of logistics qualifications is designed to help business within the industry to develop its workforce, increasing skills, productivity and efficiency.
These logistics qualifications cover a diverse range of specialist skills and knowledge from health and safety to picking goods; customer service to preparing an articulated vehicle; identifying delivery points.
These are particularly popular with employers as training and assessment can be carried out largely within the workplace. This means qualifications can be undertaken during the working day and require minimal time off the job.
The qualifications and associated training can be tailored to be relevant to an individual’s daily work and business procedures, to ensure maximum benefit is derived by both the learner and their business.
The FDQ team are all attending the FAB awards evening in Leicester tonight (19 October). As a result the office will be closed from approximately 4pm today, reopening at 11am tomorrow.
If you need to contact us during this time, please email us at email@example.com and we will respond as quickly as possible.
A number of our products require review, feedback from our centres is essential in ensuring FDQ qualifications continue to meet the needs of our centres, the food industry and its workforce. The qualifications affected can be found here.
