FDF has responded to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy consultation on the draft strategic guidance document for the Institute for Apprenticeships. FDF's response acknowledges:
  • Need for a holistic view of the industry when taking decisions to approve and develop standards and assessment plans; and making recommendations on funding.
  • Importance of an in-depth understanding of the food and Drink manufacturing sector from the relationship managers.
  • Need for a transparency on how decisions will be taken.
  • Consideration of employer needs when looking at technical education and apprenticeship qualification provisions.
