Jul 13, 2023 | NSAFD News

The Food and Drink Careers Passport ® (FDCP), developed by the National Skills Academy for Food & Drink, has been shortlisted for the Food and Drink Federation’s annual industry excellence awards.

The Food & Drink Careers Passport ® makes it easy for people looking for a career in the food and drink sector to show consistent proof that they already have the basic knowledge all industry firms are looking for.

The associated industry standard courses leading to Passport qualification, registration and certification are purpose-designed by leading experts, regularly reviewed with industry input and delivered only via the NSAFD.

Once completed, qualifications are officially registered in the NSAFD’s dedicated national Passport database – giving employers full online transparency of attainment and speeding up the entire on-boarding process.

The FDF Awards celebrate exceptional innovation, competitiveness and talent in the UK’s food and drink industry with entries from right across the food and drink supply chain.

“We are delighted that the Food and Drink Careers Passport ® has been nominated for in The Best Education Initiative category. A year after it’s official launch we are delighted that the FDCP is playing such an increasingly recognised role in helping new talent enter food and drink manufacturing which employs almost 500,000 people and is now the UK’s biggest manufacturing sector offering a vast range of exciting career paths to communities across the country” said NSAFD CEO Louise Cairns.

The winners of the FDF Awards will be announced in London on September 21. A full list of nominees is available on the FDF website
