Northern Ireland Food and Drink L2 Apprenticeship Review


The NSAFD are working with the food and drink industry in Northern Ireland in order to ensure the industry has the right apprenticeships to meet their needs.

A Sectoral Partnership of employers has proposed the development of a brand new L2 Food and Drink Operations apprenticeship, including the specification of a new qualification.

Through this consultation, we would welcome feedback on the content of this new L2 qualification.  It will be of particular interest to stakeholders including prospective apprentices, awarding bodies, assessors, providers and employers.

The consultation questionnaire includes a number of questions.  These questions are not exhaustive and we would also welcome your comments on any related issue.  Please provide reasons alongside your answers where possible.

The consultation period will run to Friday, 21st February 2020.

Every comment is valuable. Thank you very much for taking part. Please complete all the following short questions to help us put your views in context.
