Smallgoods Traineeship A Win For Industry
William Angliss Institute's courses continue to bring training opportunities that support skill gaps and responds to industry needs.
A new traineeship to support smallgoods producers and production workers is commencing at William Angliss Institute. Butchers and retail outlets will also be supported with a specialist qualification for apprentices specialising in smallgoods production such as hams and bacons.
The Certificate III in Meat Processing (Smallgoods General) Traineeship is ideal for smallgoods producers in manufacturing environments and is two years part-time training. Trainees will develop specialty skills by continuing to work in industry with our expert trainers visiting the workplace to deliver training.
The Certificate III in Meat processing (Smallgoods Manufacture) Apprenticeship is four years part-time and delivers training to apprentices including specialist skills and knowledge to work with smallgoods. The training is adapted for each workplace and apprentices are trained onsite.
"Specialised industry training gives us the opportunity to adapt our delivery to suit each workplace. For example the traineeships can suit some smallgoods companies who want employees to be trained for a specific task or a couple of specific tasks which they are rotated over longer periods of time. Whereas smaller retail outlets need apprentices to be able to do a task from start to finish and therefore need a more rounded skill set," program leader food processing Kathy Majstorovic said.
All Angliss training and technical skill delivery is nationally accredited.
Both courses include Food safety training including hygiene and safety, workplace health and safety and quality assurance, which follows Food Safety Australia and New Zealand guidelines.
The courses also cover aging, curing and smoking to boning and marinating.
