HCUK Training has been working with Chaucer Foods UK LTD since February 2017. Working in partnership on a project to upskill all existing employees through Apprenticeships in the following subject areas:• Customer service • Management • Manufacturing

Our oldest apprentice on programme is Valerie Griffin who is 67 years old. Valerie has worked at Chaucer for 13 years and although she is very competent in her job role she was keen to take up the opportunity to develop her knowledge and skills further by enrolling on the Level 2 Improving Operational Performance apprenticeship.

She says "The apprenticeship has been very informative! Getting out of the workplace and discussing issues with other staff has been good. I’ve definitely learnt some new things! It has been good to learn why we do some of the things we do. I liked the group sessions that we did in the meeting room. I learnt new things about places to get information, unions, and some of the laws and rules that have changes and come into practice over the years."
