A significant proportion of the UK food manufacturing sector is made up of those for whom English is not their first language. In a highly regulated environment this can throw up challenges for food businesses in ensuring that all their manufacturing and processing operatives are fully trained to meet food safety compliance standards.

To meet these challenges FDQ has developed the Food Safety Certificate suite. A range of endorsed programmes which comes with a selection of materials to support learning and assessment. Assessment papers are available in a number of the most in demand languages:

These programmes provide a fantastic alternative to regulated food safety qualifications. Enabling businesses and learning providers to train and assess workers to the required standards, whilst taking into account foreign language needs.

Food safety in foreign languages

These programmes are designed for those learners who are working in, or preparing to work in food manufacturing or in food supply chain operative roles where English is not their first language. The programmes are available to be assessed in seven popular foreign languages.

The aim of these food safety programmes is to assess underpinning knowledge to recognised National Occupational Standards (NOS).

MEAT Ipswich learner is FDQ’s 100th EPA success!

15/5/2019

 

 Owen Smith

 Owen Smith learning lamb butchery skills at MEAT Ipswich butchery school.

 

  

Owen Smith (18) has become our 100th successful EPA candidate. Owen trained for his butchery apprenticeship with MEAT Ipswich, where his trainer, Stuart Davis, said of him,

 

"Owen is a pleasant and very well mannered young man. Owen has gained confidence throughout his apprenticeship and has applied his learning to practical situations at his place of work, enabling him to adapt certain practices to suit the needs of the company. "

 

Originally studying for  ‘A’ levels, Owen realised the academic route wasn’t for him, so applied for an apprentice butcher job with Ansell and Sons in Maldon, Essex. Though at first he struggled working a 39 hour week he enjoyed the butchery training, especially as he was being paid to learn! Since completing his butchery apprenticeship and end-point assessment he has become an integral part of the team. He loves interacting with people and feels he learns something new every day.

 

Now more than ever apprenticeships are a great way of bringing new people into your team, or developing the skills of existing staff. On 1st April employer contributions were halved from 10% to 5%. This means the Government funds 95% of the apprenticeship training costs. In some circumstances 100% of training costs are covered. Talk to one of our friendly team to find out more.
