Mathiesons Bakery Ltd approached NFDT with a view to creating a programme to aid the development of department team leaders in managing and developing their colleagues, they understood the manufacturing process and were looking to improve areas of their skills away from the day to day production.

Sally Barrie Mathiesons HR Manager was instrumental in getting the programme set up along with the site departmental managers and new to post Training & Development co-ordinator Karen Hunter. All are all fully behind the programmes and have developed site specific learning on the whole business for their employees.

Mathiesons pride themselves on employee engagement, development and fair working and see this programme as a fantastic step towards staff development, retention and reward.

The current programme of work now has two groups of learners totalling 14 learners who are all undertaking Modern Apprenticeships in Food & Drink Operations at SCQF level 6.

There is also a pipeline of future MA learners in Bakery Skills at SCQF level 6.

Good luck to all involved in the programme.
