Food and Drink Manufacturing Excellence

Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQs) in Food Manufacturing Excellence (FME) are designed for learners who are working in food manufacture and offer a sustainable continuous improvement programme for the workplace.

To allow learners to progress from a Modern Apprenticeship to another appropriate higher level of qualification is a key feature in the design of these qualifications.

They will also suit learners who are competent at core production and/or manufacturing activities and are looking for ways of developing existing skills and knowledge to support productivity.

Ideal for staff who are involved in implementing and managing continuous improvement programmes for food production and manufacturing.

Put simply, FME is all about reducing waste, eliminating anything causing unnecessary production cost and ensuring that value is added and quality protected at every stage of the production process.

FME supports skills development in areas recognised as critical to achieving sustainable lean practices such as change management, leadership and using specific tools and techniques.

FME creates a sustainable lean implementation programme, leading to long term cultural changes rather that ‘one off’ activities.

SVQs in FME should appeal to all food manufacturing organisations which operate quality production practices such as lean manufacturing and six sigma.

Businesses discover that the most productive and talented people they’ll ever employ are probably already working for them.

The qualifications are available through employers and training providers such as SMT in Perth.
Focusing on change management, team working, continuous improvement tools and techniques, employers can implement the FME course as a standalone qualification.

SMT as an organisation expect to save in excess of £40000 in the first year after applying FME to their working practices.
