EggSell - The Free Range Co-operative

EggSell organises training at the request of our producers.

We work with local Training Groups and Veterinary practices to offer a wide range of courses, including First Aid, Rodent Control, Bird welfare etc.

Those who do not wish to attend food hygiene courses for a full day are able to access training on-line and study in their own time. We also offer a basic food hygiene test to those producers who hold a recognised certificate themselves, but also require their staff to have received and understood basic food hygiene.

In addition speakers at the Yorkshire Egg Producer Group which is held four times per year, ensure that those attending are kept up to date with current industry issues.

If any producer wishes a course to be delivered on a specific topic, please contact the office.

British Egg Academy In partnership with Morrisons and 28 industry stakeholders

Type: 16+

Duration: 1 year starting January 2021

The Course

Delivered in partnership with Chippindale Foods, Morrisons’ own integrated egg operation, as well as numerous companies who are specialists within the Egg industry, this Academy is aimed at those wanting to join the UK’s fastest growing protein sector – eggs!

Despite being an industry worth over £1 billion to the UK economy, there is a shortage of people coming into the industry and there is very little training currently available, which is why we have developed the British Egg Academy with the support of industry specialists.

The Qualification

Level 2 Diploma in Agriculture with training and work based learning from the supporting companies.

This course identified knowledge, understanding and technical skills employers need from learners entering the sector in the coming years. Assessment is through traditional and contemporary methods such as practical and written assessments and blended learning.

Work experience forms a large part of the programme, opportunities for placements have been identified nationwide and employers have a pivotal role in the delivery of the programme.
