Pack 12: Training & Competency eDocs

£42.00 (plus VAT)

Training is a fundamental aspect of all Standards. Staff, agency staff, contractors and even visitors have to be trained to a sufficient level to ensure that the product is protected. This means that a base level of training has to be applied, which is generally known as an induction that equips the individual with the fundamental understanding and awareness of how to behave when working for a food-related company. The next level of training that must be given, ensures that staff are competent to complete tasks that are specific to their role. This is called procedural training. And then there’s subject matter training, which can vary from an awareness level – right up to being a subject matter expert.  

This means that training is a complicated yet crucial subject, which needs to be controlled and supported by a simple but effective system. This pack provides you with a detailed procedure that covers all the above aspects of training and provides you with a training matrix, so that you can effectively manage your programme when you’ve developed it.  

Implement a training system that’s been developed by training experts and you know you’ll be onto a winner.

Training programme

To produce a robust training programme, an assessment of every role is needed to establish what training is needed. A matrix of what training is needed for each role, in every department, for each member of staff is required. Once the matrix is built, it allows for planning of routine competency checks.

subject matter


Ensuring that staff have understood what they have been taught is essential. And competency assessments are one aspect of training that often gets missed. This system provides the detail that’s needed to apply competency.

The pack includes a competency test template, so you can see how it can be done and develop tests for your business’ training programmes. 



The induction of new starters is the foundation of a good training programme. It should provide the learner with the basics they need to work unsupervised. This system provides all the key aspects that need to be covered in the first few weeks of a new starter joining the company.

If you want to give your new starters the best start with your business, our Food Safety & GMP for Manufacturing training is ideal. It covers everything required by the Standard and your customers.
