    Purpose of this framework

    Summary of the purpose of the framework

    Definition of Apprenticeships

    An Apprenticeship is a job with an accompanying skills development programme designed by

    employers in the sector. It allows the apprentice to gain technical knowledge and real practical

    experience, along with functional and personal skills, required for their immediate job and

    future career. These are acquired through a mix of learning in the workplace, formal

    off-the-job training and the opportunity to practice and embed new skills in a real work

    context. The broader mix differentiates the Apprenticeship experience from training delivered

    to meet narrowly focused job needs.

    On completion of the Apprenticeship the apprentice must be able to undertake the full range of

    duties, in the range of circumstances appropriate to the job, confidently and competently to

    the standard set by the industry.

    Background information about Apprenticeships

    All Apprenticeship Frameworks are linked to specific job roles or occupations. Providers must

    work closely with employers to ensure that the Apprenticeship offered is the most appropriate

    for the individual’s job role with their employer, whilst reflecting individual employer and

    learner needs.

    The focus of an Apprenticeship is on equipping individuals with the new skills and learning they

    need for their job roles and future employment and progression.

    It is appropriate for those moving into a new job or for individuals in an existing job where

    significant new knowledge and skills will be acquired through the Apprenticeship. Providers

    must work closely with the employer to ensure that the Apprenticeship will meet this

    requirement.

    Employment is a fundamental part of an Apprenticeship and in this context is more than just

    having a contract of employment. An apprentice must be employed in a job role with a

    productive purpose.

    Ideally they will have a range of experience and additional enhancement opportunities that can

    aid their future progression. This can include, but is not limited to, additional units with

    smaller employers and higher level Maths and English.

    The duration of the Apprenticeship must meet the minimum duration requirement announced

    by NAS:

  • 16

    ... Food and Drink (England)

    Apprenticeships for apprentices aged 16 – 18 must last at least 12 months. For those

    Apprentices aged 19 or over the Apprenticeship should also last at least 12 months

    unless relevant prior learning is recorded. Where this is the case the Apprenticeship will

    not be less than 6 months.

    Apprenticeship delivery must be planned to make full and effective use of the duration,

    including the opportunity for apprentices to embed and extend their learning through

    repeated workplace practice.

    All apprentices commencing their Apprenticeship on or after 6th April 2012 must have an

    Apprenticeship Agreement between the employer and the apprentice. This can be used to

    reinforce the understanding of the requirements of the Apprenticeship.

    The Food and Drink Industry

    The food and drink industry is an exciting, dynamic, fast-paced and competitive industry driven

    by innovation and new technology. As the largest manufacturing sector in the UK (based on

    number of employees and financial turnover), it includes some of the country’s best known

    businesses and brands, and offers a wide variety of well paid, relatively secure jobs. There are

    opportunities for people with different abilities, backgrounds and experience to enter the sector

    and develop and progress in their chosen career.

    The food and drink manufacturing and processing (FDMP) industry develops, manufactures,

    processes, packs and distributes food and drink products for sale in the UK and worldwide.

    With more than 313,000 employees across 5,700 businesses and annual exports worth

    £8.8bn, making up nearly half (48%) of total UK food and drink manufacturing exports,

    England’s food and drink industry has a vital role to play in the UK’s economy. This can only

    be achieved if the sector continues to have world-class skills and has the ability to see the

    bigger picture. This Apprenticeship Framework in Food and Drink provides an excellent basis

    to introduce these skills. (Source: Improve England Skills Insight and Labour Market Facts

    Profile 2013/14)

    The UK food and drink manufacturing and processing industry needs to recruit 170,000 staff

    between 2010 and 2020 to meet growth demands and replace those who leave or retire (with

    35% of the current workforce being eligible for retirement in the next 20 years). This includes

    25,000 managers and senior officials; 16,000 high skilled professionals; 24,000 associate

    professional and technical roles; 33,000 process, plant and machine operatives; and 35,000

    elementary roles. (Source: Working Futures 4, 2012)

    There are a number of complex issues currently driving the FDMP industry in England including:

    Consumer protection and public health – for example, supply chain issues and traceability

    Globalisation - companies are tending to relocate where cost advantages are identified

    Consumer demands - consumers are more concerned about health and nutrition than

    ever before

  • 17

    ... Food and Drink (England)

    Technology – innovative production methods are being introduced

    Environmental change – finding sustainable methods for food production is critical

    Recruitment and skills issues facing the industry

    The FDMP industry in England is facing a number of skills issues, negatively affecting its ability

    to achieve its potential:

    Within the existing FDMP workforce, 15% of employers report having vacancies

    Employers are most likely to have vacancies for associate professionals (30%), machine

    operatives (30%) and elementary occupations (14%)

    15% FDMP employers in England have skills gaps

    Of the 15% of England FDMP employers reporting vacancies, about 4% of these are

    considered ‘hard to fill’

    2% of employers in the FDMP sector in England report skills shortage vacancies

    Technical skills, oral communication and team working skills are the most frequently

    stated skills deficiencies found in production roles

    How this Framework will help address skills issues

    The Apprenticeship Framework for Food and Drink allows apprentices to follow the most

    relevant pathway for their roles - whether specialist (eg., Craft Baker), sector-specific or

    generalist; operative or supervisory/management - providing them with an opportunity to

    learn new skills in an industry with wide-ranging careers and good progression prospects.

    The Framework allows apprentices to gain technical knowledge and real practical experience,

    in areas where there are known skills gaps and ‘hard to fill’ vacancies. The Intermediate Level

    Apprenticeship provides an entry route into the sector, and is suitable for those learners

    moving into a new job, or for equipping existing employees with new skills and learning; whilst

    the Advanced Level Apprenticeship provides progression routes to technical supervisory and

    management roles and senior operative roles where there are skills gaps and increasing future

    demand.

    The most significant training benefits for businesses in the industry are found to be those

    associated with intermediate level skills. Investment in intermediate level skills brings broader

    benefits, not just in terms of the apprentice’s job satisfaction and career opportunities, but

    also in meeting business goals, innovation and responding to the market. This Framework,

    with its diverse range of pathways, including many at intermediate level, provides an

    opportunity for employers to invest in these skills; and for learners to achieve their career

    goals.

    The Intermediate Level Food and Drink (Food Industry Skills) pathway is for those in generalist

    roles relevant to all food and drink sectors, such as processing control operative, quality

    control, facilities support or sales/service support in a food industry organisation; and specialist

    operatives such as butcher, baker or dairy production operative. Operatives often work with

  • 18

    Semi-automated processing control and monitoring functions coupled with batch production

    systems. However, batch operations may require some specialist sub-sector skills and

    knowledge. Role-holders need to be highly responsive to customer needs where the

    requirement is for flexible processing operations.

    The Intermediate Level Food and Drink (Food Industry Team Leading) pathway is for team

    leaders; and the Advanced Level Food and Drink (Food Industry Skills and Technical

    Management) pathway is for those performing advanced technical skills in operative roles; and

    for technical managers and supervisors of food manufacture and the food supply chain

    environment, in areas such as production, technical control and quality assurance. These are

    areas where there are known skills gaps.

    Throughout the Framework, the Food Manufacturing Excellence (FME) pathway, focuses on

    business improvement techniques and ‘lean’ production methods. FME can have a significant

    and tangible impact on productivity and profitability. Employers recognise FME techniquest are

    powerful development tools, critical to business success.

    Aims and objectives of this framework (England)

    Aims of the Apprenticeship

    The aim of this Framework is to attract new entrants into the sector from a wide range of

    backgrounds to replace those who leave or retire; and to upskill the existing workforce to meet

    the skills needs of employers in order to help increase productivity and profitability.

    The objectives are to:

    Contribute to addressing skills gaps in the food and drink sector

    Contribute to increasing productivity and performance through pathways such as Food

    Manufacturing Excellence

    Provide progression for apprentices to encourage the shift towards ‘higher-skills’

    requirements

    Entry conditions for this framework

    Entry conditions for this Framework

    There are no formal entry requirements to this Framework in terms of academic qualifications.

    It is open to all individuals who show a strong desire to pursue a career in the food and drink

    industry.

    However, to be successful in an Apprenticeship the potential apprentice will need to

    demonstrate attributes such as: self-reliance, high motivation and good interpersonal skills. It

    is likely that they will have gained some experience that will enable these personal qualities to

    be identified. For instance, participation on a pre-apprenticeship programme or a work-related

    placement (especially within the food and drink sector) would provide a good grounding.

    Entry conditions for all pathways include having a high standard of cleanliness and being able

    to follow strict hygiene and health and safety rules. Medical advice should be sought about the

    suitability of the Apprenticeship if the applicant suffers from a food related allergy.

    The minimum hours of employment for an apprentice should be at least 30 hours per week.

    By exception, where the individual’s circumstances or the particular nature of employment in a

    given sector makes this impossible, then an absolute minimum of 16 hours must be met. In

    such cases the duration of the Apprenticeship should be extended. Refer to the SFA for

    current rules.

    Initial assessment

    Training providers and employers will use an initial assessment process to ensure that

    applicants have a fair opportunity to demonstrate their ability and to tailor programmes to

    meet individual needs, not to screen out applicants.

    This process will identify any prior learning and experience – Recognition of Prior Learning

    (RPL) – which may count towards achievement of the Framework. Where this is the case for

    competence, knowledge or Functional Skills, the Apprenticeship programme must be tailored

    to allow the apprentice to undertake new learning, including learning at a higher level, and

    development of new skills.

    Functional Skills

    All apprentices must achieve the required Functional Skills; applicants may already hold

    equivalent qualifications.

    The delivery model must be designed so that all apprentices who do not have Level 2 in

    English and Maths are given the opportunity to progress towards this. Providers must ensure

    that their delivery models are structured to deliver these framework requirements.
