New members welcomed into NSA

11 March 2010

Six training providers have joined the NSA for Food & Drink Manufacturing: Manchester Metropolitan University, London South Bank University, the Manufacturing Institute, Festo, Food Dialog and NSF CMi

Justine Fosh, executive director of the National Skills Academy for Food and Drink Manufacturing, said: “The National Skills Academy consists of the very best organisations, bringing together leaders in their field. We rigorously assess every applicant to ensure the network comprises only the very best organisations that are acknowledged for delivering first-class training to food and drink companies. The National Skills Academy masque is therefore a guarantee to employers that all the new training providers carrying it will offer the very best service and training solutions that bring genuine benefits to their businesses.”

Each of the latest approved providers will focus on a particular specialism under the academy banner. The Manufacturing Institute joins the lean manufacturing network, while Northampton-based training provider Festo will spread its capabilities across two networks – robotics and automation and leadership and management.

Manchester Metropolitan University, London South Bank University, Suffolk-based Food Dialog and NSF CMi from Oxfordshire will join the general food and drink network.

The National Skills Academy for Food and Drink Manufacturing was established in 2007 in order to raise standards in occupational training within the food and drink industry. It operates through a series of provider networks on a region-by-region and sector-by-sector basis, with separate networks already established for bakery, dairy and general food production, as well as for specialist operational disciplines such as lean manufacturing and robotics and automation.

A full list of all National Skills Academy centres can be found at www.foodanddrink.nsacademy.co.uk, along with further information about each centre and their individual areas of expertise.
