Government initiative to increase skilled Food Industry employment
June 22, 2018
[:en]Food and beverage manufacturing industry to back government initiative to increase skilled employment
In June’s edition of Food Processing Magazine, Editor Suzanne Gill writes that in the current “context of technological advancement”, food and beverage companies are “seeking to address their skills issues”, and she heralds a “new landscape for training and education in England”.
Gill describes what are likely to be “significant” new levels of investment from the Government, which are intended to “incentivise the uptake of new technology”, to increase the number of technical and skilled workers in the food and beverage industry.
The government are working with industry leaders to drive awareness of new options for the up-and-coming generation, such as Food and Drink Engineering Apprenticeships, the Masters Degree in Food and Drink Engineering, Appetite for Engineering, and Tasty Careers Ambassadorships.
With the increase in automation, Gill feels that these training and education options will overcome the current issue of the “disconnect between the finished product and the engineering skill required to achieve it”.
