Training opportunity in Denmark

British butchers aiming for a management role are being encouraged to book a flight to Denmark.

The Danish Meat Trade College (DMTC) in Roskilde has places on its one-week manager training programme, starting on 24 January, teaching practical skills as well as providing an essential grounding in general management

The practical side of the programme includes cutting and de-boning, while the theory focuses on practical exercises in management of data collection and treatment for yield, production and quality control. Other areas covered include attitudes and motivation of staff relating to the implementation of hygiene regulations.

“The course is aimed at anyone looking to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to begin a successful career in the meat industry,” said Anders Bowall-Jensen, international consultant for the DMTC.

A week at Roskilde costs £1,800 per person, including accommodation, and all training is conducted in English.
