Initially I thought I wouldn't be good at it, but as soon as I got started I got right into it. I really enjoyed working on the units and got all the support i needed from my Training Advisor.

I would advise anyone considering an SVQ to think about the benefits it could have on their career. It is a great opportunity with excellent support and resources available. I would definitely recommend the SVQ courses run by NFDT, they provide great opportunities for learning.

Katie, Loch Fyne Oysters

We wanted our staff to undertake training as we felt they would benefit from a structured training course from a reputable training provider with a very good understanding of the industry. NFDT qualifications attained by our emloyees are recognised by outside auditors who can see we are committed to staff training and development. The fact there is no cost to the business other than the time provided to allow our employees to carry our their course work is a fantastic benefit.


We feel that courses such as Food Manufacturing Excellence (FME) is a great learning opportunity for empoyees within the business and the company will benefit greatly.

“The course was very thought provoking and encouraged managers to look at how they manage as well as how their staff react to different types of management.”

“The training was inspirational. It has given me confidence in the way I manage and I will be looking to expand my knowledge of the psychology behind people behaviours. It’s been fantastic, thank you.”
