Joining a Seafood Training Network

Why join?

  • To make a contribution to the wider fish and shellfish industry;
  • To understand what learning and development opportunities are available, and to be able to influence what opportunities are made available in the future;
  • To have a voice regionally, nationally and across the UK on training and education in fish and shellfish;
 

    There are three Seafood Training Networks in the UK, covering Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland. later there may be Networks covering parts of England.

    Each Network is made up of fish and shellfish businesses who are interested in guiding their Network.

    Each Network will need between 20 and 40 businesses from the processing, mongering, frying and other onshore sectors of the fish and shellfish industry.

    The role of businesses in the Networks is to provide comment and feedback to the Steering Group that manages the Network.

    Each Network will also have members who are independent/commercial training providers who deliver fish and shellfish specific training. This may include a fish filleting trainer or a food safety trainer that has a fish specific food safety training course.

    The role of these training members is to work with the Network to improve the availability and quality of training available to employers.

    If you are a seafood business or training provider who is interested in becoming a member of a Network then we would be happy to consider your application.

    All you have to do is review the documents below and act accordingly.

    For more information please click on the appropriate Network logo on the left to go to that Network's micro site.

    Information for Potential Training Provider Members

    We are keen to invite all of the fish and shellfish training providers within each Network area to become part of that Network. This applies only to those providers who deliver training programmes that have specific fish and shellfish content rather than general providers who have fish and shellfish clients.

    The exception to this are Colleges and other organisations that have facilities and expertise that can support more general seafood education.

    If in doubt please contact academy@seafish.co.uk for more information. Seafish is interested in expanding its own network of approved training providers, and all Seafish approved training providers will be invited to join their appropriate Network.

  • Should be a training provider that delivers fish and shellfish training to employers in the Network area.
  • Must be prepared to respond to the occasional emails from the Steering Group in a timely manner. Continued membership of a Network is dependent upon this.
  • For full details and the application form please view this Membership of a Seafood Training Network pdf document.

    Note: It will be necessary to be a Network member to have your training programmes promoted by the Network. The Network Steering Group may decline to promote any training programme or related service at it's discretion.
