Food businesses and specialist food industry training providers in Scotland are being invited to contribute to a major review of the Scottish Vocational Qualification in Food Manufacture.
The review, five years after the qualification was originally launched, is designed to ensure the qualification meets the future needs of Scottish food businesses.
The qualification, which provides the skills and knowledge required to achieve competence in specific job roles, has proved immensely popular with Scottish food businesses and is the key qualification in the Apprenticeship framework for Scotland.
Hundreds of learners have successfully completing the SVQ which is based on a vast choice of units to meet the needs of different food sub sectors and company size – from craft based businesses to large scale automated production.
Business and training organisations delivering, or considering delivering the SVQ are now being asked for their opinions on everything from the qualification’s title to its structure and the number and type of sector pathways it needs to contain.
