Tri Education strategy for CEDA, CESA & FCSI

Three associations have joined forces to raise awareness of the professional development opportunities available within the hospitality industry.

The Catering Equipment Distributors Association (CEDA), Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI) and Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA) have developed an education agreement to build the existing framework of qualifications.

They have added a CPD in Foodservice Kitchen and Equipment Design to the education portfolio, which already includes the established Certified Foodservice Professional (CFSP) qualification and the MSc degree in International Hospitality Design and Management Consultancy.

Vita Whitaker, deputy chairman, CEDA, explained: "The catering equipment industry agrees that the most effective way to increase professional reputation and professional capability to deliver first class design, planning, installation and customer service is through established and respected professional qualifications across each spectrum of the business.

"Our aim is to support individuals and businesses by improving their skills and knowledge with a set of approved qualifications. Together we will assist to provide help with funding advice, mentoring and encouragement.

Nick Oryino, chair of CESA, said: "CESA, CEDA and the FCSI are united in recognising the vital need to raise the standard of education and training, both for the individual, for personal development, and for the industry as a whole as we address the growing problem of skills shortages."
