Warburtons opens learning centre
23 September, 2009
Warburtons staff in Blackpool are getting a career boost after the company and Bakers Food and Allied Workers Union forked out for a learning centre.
They have invested £5,000 in the new facility which staff can use during their breaks and production shut-downs.
More than 20 staff in Marton are already using new computers to improve their IT skills and take up business-related training in computers, health and safety, finance, touch typing, and online skills for life. Courses for literacy and numeracy will also be introduced soon.
Jason Hall, unit manager at Warburtons, said: “We already have around a third of our staff working to gain better qualifications and more sign up almost every day. The new centre will give employees the opportunity to further their skills and qualifications in an accessible way.”
