New Career Kick-start Fund For Female Staff

New government funding toward training designed to improve the career prospects of women employees is now available to food and drink manufacturing firms across the UK. The funds, initially secured by food and drink skills council Improve, are being used by the National Skills Academy for Food & Drink to make career development training available to over 300 women nationwide.

The Academy is making grants of up to £800 per female trainee available to food and drink companies to cover the cost of tuition. Firms are not required to make a cash investment but simply an in-kind contribution amounting to paid time away from work of an equivalent amount while the employee is training.

“Women make up a much smaller proportion of the overall workforce in food and drink manufacturing compared to other industries and that is particularly true at senior level, says Justine Fosh, Executive Director of the Academy. “More and more opportunities are opening up for women at all levels and with the right training they can not only help push their company forward but accelerate their own career to a new level.”
