...are those which are designed to develop the individual within their job role and to confirm competence at work.
These qualifications work particularly well for employers and employees as training and assessment can be mainly carried out within the workplace, and therefore require minimal time off the job.
The qualifications and associated training can be tailored to fit an individual’s job role and business process ensuring maximum benefits. These qualifications have been designed in response to food industry demand, and link directly to the skills, knowledge and competence needed in specific job roles.
These qualifications have a direct relationship with National Occupational Standards, which means that they are designed to reflect the up to date learning and skills needs in a particular sector or occupation.
Most of these food qualifications also sit within the industry relevant apprenticeship frameworks.
...are designed to recognise achievement in knowledge and understanding.
These qualifications can be delivered and assessed either in a learning environment or at work. They are suitable for those who are working in, or preparing to work in food supply chain operative, supervisory or management roles.
The majority of these qualifications are designed to give learners key knowledge required to work safely within the sector.
...offer learners the opportunity to develop practical skills and knowledge in an off-the-job environment.
These qualifications are designed for those who are either considering employment in a particular sector or are already working within it and would like to further build their skills. They are designed for delivery in an off-the-job learning environment.
Learners taking these qualifications are unlikely to be working in the industry already.
I have no hesitation in choosing FDQ for our compliance qualifications. Their expertise and service are second to none.
