First food and drink training consultation group launches

Learning providers and representatives from food and drink industries have formed the first of three new consultation groups with the aim of helping to plan the future of food and drink training.

Improve, the food and drink sector skills council, has hosted the first Learning Provider Consultation Group, which is for England and Wales, and is currently arranging meetings to take place early in 2006 with training providers in Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Personnel from a range of training providers, including further education colleges, centres of vocational excellence and private training institutions attended the first England and Wales group meeting to discuss topics surrounding apprenticeship frameworks, standards, qualifications and other ongoing training projects. Representatives from the National Association of Master Bakers and from Poultec also attended.

Teresa Brookes, learning frameworks manager at Improve said: "The meeting enabled us to share with learning providers the vision of delivering relevant skills through training designed with input from employers. We were also able to develop ideas on how we can ensure more successful training in future."

The learning provider consultation group for England and Wales will meet twice a year. Delegates will also be asked to contribute to consultations via email at various times throughout the year.
