About the National Skills Academy for Food & Drink

The National Skills Academy for Food & Drink is part of Improve Limited, the skills council for the UK food and drink manufacturing sector.

The National Skills Academy (http://foodanddrink.nsacademy.co.uk)  is a single source of training for the food and drink sector – and if your business is lacking the skills it needs, we have a training solution to help. The right training can increase production, improve productivity and could be invaluable to your business.

Our courses and qualifications are delivered by our network of approved food and drink training specialists, which include universities, colleges and private institutions, all with proven results throughout the food and drink industry – a key requirement of being accepted into the Academy.

The Academy was set up in 2007 to support Food manufacturing businesses by providing specialist training to Food and Drink manufacturing staff - thereby driving up the productivity and competitiveness of the UK Food and Drink manufacturing Industry.

Specialist training organisations that are Academy members undergo rigorous quality checks and include both publicly and privately funded learning centres. Each delivers some aspect of skills development for the food and drink manufacturing industry as a whole, and/or specialist skills for one of its various sub-sectors.

To help your business succeed in this time of economic challenge, its vital employers invest in skills. Training increases productivity in the short term - and Food and Drink businesses that train are twice as likely to succeed as those who don’t.

Research shows that three in four business people (76%) believe that their organisation would not succeed without investment in training.

The right solution for your business could come in many forms – it could be delivered through a workshop, short course or apprenticeship – or we may have to develop a completely bespoke programme designed specifically to help your business. Whatever it takes, we’ll find the perfect training for you.

We offer a range of funding opportunities for employers of all sizes to address different needs. In some cases the funding is secured by us and made available through our network of approved providers but we also work closely with partners like Improve, our Sector Skills Councils and with our network of approved providers to join up Skills support for employers.

Food and Drink Manufacturing and Processing is vital to the UK economy. 424,000 people are employed across 11,300 workplaces.

Skills and qualifications are in high demand in the food and drinks industry. At the National Skills Academy our network of training providers offer a variety of training courses that fulfill a wide range of industry needs.
Food and Drink employers and learners can receive free impartial advice from us on the range of Skills support available and its relevance to their business.
