Morrisons Upskills Production Staff Thanks to Grimsby Institute Training

A national supermarket chain, which has a fish and seafood processing unit in Grimsby, has saved training costs and improved the skills of its workforce with the help of a course delivered by the Grimsby Institute Group. Morrisons PLC wanted to increase and improve the skills set of its employees, whilst making the business more compliant with food safety standards. However, in order to maintain a high level of training and keep costs within budget, the company wanted to deliver this in-house.

Morrisons’s site training officer, Helen Sharp (pictured), attended the Grimsby Institute to gain a Level 4 in Food Safety qualification, which enables her to deliver training to a Level 3.

She explains: “To be able to deliver a certain level of training, you have to have achieved the level above. We wanted to train people to a Level 3 in Food Safety, to give them greater knowledge of the issues surrounding this subject and bring some staff to a more senior level. This meant I had to upskill myself first.”

Helen Sharp continues: “The course delivered at Grimsby Institute was great. It was thorough and flexible, as I was able to attend one day a week over six weeks, which fitted in well with my working hours. The course covered everything from legal issues and legislation, to procedures, processes and practical elements such as pest control, temperature management, and contamination reduction and control.”

The Grimsby Institute Group encourages businesses like Morrisons to maximise their skills base through effective professional development and training. Through its business-focused training team, the Group offers a wide variety of business training services to companies in the region, helping them realise and develop the potential of their employees.

Lesley Charlesworth-Browne, director of business and professional development at the Grimsby Institute Group, says: “Investing in your employees will give you the competitive edge that is essential in today’s economy. There’s no place like Grimsby Institute for this region’s business. We are responsive, flexible, reliable and proven in delivering exceptional education, training and skills development.”

Lesley Charlesworth-Browne adds: “We offer short courses which give employees skills and knowledge in a day to a few weeks, as well as longer programmes which develop skills and knowledge and provide recognised qualifications. We work closely with businesses to ensure that they receive exactly what’s best for their company and their team to develop, progress and thrive.”

The Grimsby Institute Group currently works with a wide range of companies, from sole traders, partnerships and SMEs, to large national and international organisations. It has operated in many sectors and provided support at every level.

The Grimsby Institute Group knows training and employee development comes at a price, so they can help you get the most from your budget. They can advise you on the most cost-effective routes to funding and carefully guide you through the application process, making it simple and straightforward.
