We continue to choose FDQ for their high levels of expertise in food industry qualifications.
The majority of the industry covers storage of general merchandise, but can also include the specialised areas of storage of gas or liquids, agricultural commodities and refrigerated goods.
Businesses operating in this sector require a range of skills development, and the FDQ warehousing and storage suite is designed to assist these businesses and the learning providers which work with them to up skill staff in the right areas.
These qualifications cover a diverse range of skills and knowledge from health and safety to effective working relationship development; picking and wrapping to stock management and order processing; customer service to use of forklift side loaders.
The purpose of these qualifications is to develop the warehousing workforce, providing organisations of all sizes across all sectors with the staff needed to increase productivity and efficiency.
The qualifications within this suite will equip individuals with the skills, knowledge and experience needed to undertake warehousing operations roles in a range of settings.
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.
