Muntons, who recently celebrated their fiftieth year of malting in Bridlington, has just had their third employee pass the nationally recognised General Certificate in Malting, a level three qualification administered by the Institute of Brewing and Distilling.
Over the last ten years many of Muntons long serving members of staff have reached their natural retirement age and now the next generation of maltings operatives are coming through the workforce to pick up the mantle.
Staff training is important to Muntons, who actively encourage their staff to undertake work related courses. Joel Cockerill is the latest from their Bridlington maltings to make the grade.
Alan Ridealgh, Muntons Managing Director on presenting the certificate to Joel commented: “It always gives me great pleasure presenting training certificates to staff and presenting the General Certificate in Malting is a particularly satisfying one. Joel is the third member of staff at Bridlington to receive this new and important qualification. We see investing in the training of our staff as an investment in the future of Flamborough Maltings itself.”
The General Certificate in Malting is an internationally recognised and adopted qualification forming a major part of the Certificate in Malting Competence (CMC) qualification.
