With food and drink manufacturers struggling to cope with the ever-falling supply of skilled workers, Remit Food is supporting employers to get deserving candidates back into work.
Our Remit food employability programme has been backed by ESFA (Education and Skills Funding Agency) funding and partnership sponsorship. Working with Job Centre Plus and local community groups, Remit Food gives employers the chance to offer work experience to deserving candidates.
The candidates taking part will also receive full training across key skills areas, to help them in their bid for future employment.
For employers, this is an opportunity to use fully funded resources and identify the best candidates who could be their future employees.
Throughout this three-week course, candidates’ time will be split between the classroom and work experience. The work experience would be one day a week and will be flexible depending on business requirements. Those who compete the programme will gain a range of qualifications, including:
- Level 1 Certificate in Employability
- Level 2 Award in the Principles of the food manufacturing industry
- Level 2 knowledge units from Food Industry Skills Apprenticeship Framework including product quality, product diagnosis and resolution, working effectively with others, plan and organise work activities and report and record information in food manufacturing.
Getting involved with Remit Foods employability programme will not only save organisations time and money, but it can potentially help avert a looming labour crisis.
And it’s so easy to take part! Remit will source all the candidates and deliver core knowledge training specifically for the food industry. We would only ask each employer to offer each candidate an interview at the end of the course.
