Funded training available for fish friers

We are currently able to support fish friers with a variety of funded training programmes.

These are available in user friendly formats including online learning, remotely delivered taught courses and self-study workbooks. Registration is easy and we are here to help you through the process, from submitting an application through to taking a test.

Training results in long-term gains for you, your staff and your business. Being engaged with a training course will motivate your team and enhance your business during this challenging period. Now is a great time to register for training at a reduced fee.

Funding is being provided by Seafish and Skills Development Scotland. The funded training programmes include:

  • Elementary Food Hygiene
  • Elementary Health & Safety
  • Intermediate Food Hygiene
  • Introduction to HACCP
  • Fish Frying Skills.

Our Elementary Food Hygiene and Elementary Health & Safety programmes are fully funded. Successful candidates will receive a nationally recognised qualification, jointly awarded with the Royal Environmental Health Institute of Scotland (REHIS). Both are studied for using online learning materials in written and video format. This allows the learner to study at a place, pace and time suitable to them. The multiple-choice exam is invigilated using a live video feed.

One business which has already benefitted is The Welcome Fryer in South Molton, Devon. Owner Mark Dimelow says:

The application process was simple and many of my team have successfully completed the Elementary Food Hygiene and Elementary Health & Safety qualifications. It is fantastic to see them applying their new knowledge in their job roles.

Seafish invigilator, Michael Pili adds:

Using a video conferencing platform such as Zoom allows the invigilator to safely share the exam paper with the learner. This new way of conducting exams is easy to do and allows someone in the Midlands to examine a candidate in Devon. Distance is no barrier.

The Intermediate Food Hygiene package follows the same principles of delivery as the Elementary programmes and is 50% funded. Our Introduction to HACCP course is also 50% funded. It is delivered via Zoom or Microsoft Teams as a half-day course followed by a short multiple-choice exam. The Seafish/NFFF Fish Frying Skills qualification is also 50% funded and can now be assessed remotely.

Applications received by the end of September will be processed by 5 October 2020. Applications received in October will be processed on a case by case basis, subject to funding availability.
