If you’re looking for expert advice on food industry training and skills development you’ve come to the right place. We’re a one-stop shop for information about food apprenticeships and training, food qualifications and training providers. As a charitable organisation our motivation is people, not profit. That being said we believe driving up skills can drive up profits too – so it’s a win-win situation. Our aims, quite simply are to:
Since 2014 there have been far-reaching changes to apprenticeships, most notably being the introduction of new Government reformed Trailblazer Apprenticeships. The new apprenticeships put employers in the driving seat to help develop training programmes that are tailored to the needs of the job. But knowing what you need is one thing. Developing a government approved apprenticeship is quite another. That’s where ftc come in. Our team are all food industry or vocational training specialists, so you can count on us for advice grounded in real experience. That experience helps us get the job done. We work with employer groups and the Department for Education to design and develop Trailblazer Apprenticeships, often in record time. Our Butchery Apprenticeship was the first apprenticeship in a food craft occupation to receive government approval. We’re also proud to have delivered the Advanced Butchery Apprenticeship in less than three months from first submission to final approval.
