Our Methodology: The Learning & Recognition Framework
Our Learning & Recognition Framework (LRF) is a documented model that clearly defines each and every qualification (e.g. certificate) included within a comprehensive structure. It provides a hierarchy of recognition/qualifications, e.g. levels.
While no national governmentally administered qualifications exist for the food industry in Canada, FPSC has identified a need to clearly articulate the recognition levels within the food industry.
Learning and Recognition Framework
SWPP+ provides post-secondary students with work opportunities related to their field of study and offers them the opportunity to use their academic knowledge in the workplace.
POST A JOB & HIRE A STUDENT
SWPP+ brings together employers, students and post-secondary school stakeholders to create quality work-integrated learning (WIL) opportunities.
As a community of 7,600 employers across Canada, shifting perceptions of our industry and attracting the next generation of leaders becomes possible when engaging with students directly in the workplace.
And the time is right! By 2025, Food Processing Skills Canada estimates the hiring requirement will be as high as 56,000 new people or about 20% of the existing workforce for the industry to continue to grow.
