Food and drink manufacturers are invited to attend a free one-hour webinar on industry advancement at 3pm on Wednesday 21st September.
The webinar is entitled ‘How to Embed Online Learning into your Organisation’ and will explain to manufacturers how they can make the most of technological innovation with regards to staff training and skills development in the food and drink industry.
The session is presented by Appetite Learning and will feature Rod Knox from e-learning organisation Virtual College. A spokesperson for Appetite Learning said: “In an increasingly digital age, online learning – or e-learning- is becoming the training option that top businesses in the food and drink sector choose. Market-leading manufacturers and retailers, such as Coca-Cola, Tate & Lyle and Booths, are among those embracing technology to cut their costs and reduce administration” (via foodmanufacturer.co.uk).
The webinar will explore the challenges faced by businesses regarding training and how e-learning can deliver efficient and engaging solutions for staff development. Those involved will be able to ask the presenter questions and receive a free course from Appetite Learning.
E-learning can help businesses provide information in an engaging and interesting format that can be accessed by anyone at any time. The use of e-learning is considered to be a greener and more cost-effective approach to staff training and development as it limits the amount of paper used for information packs and does not require the employment of external teaching bodies, thus saving the company money and time.
The e-learning platform, Appetite Learning, includes courses on food safety and hygiene for manufacturing, food safety and hygiene for retail and food safety and hygiene for catering. Some of the courses are City and Guilds accredited and certified for continuing professional development.
Interested parties can register online for the one-hour e-learning webinar at 3pm on Wednesday 21st September.
