Deeside College deals aims to help boost business at Dailycer UK

AN INNOVATIVE new partnership between Flintshire education chiefs and a training provider will safeguard 170 jobs at a cereal business.

Deeside College’s employer engagement department Acquire Training and breakfast food firm Dailycer UK – based on Deeside Industrial Park – are aiming to preserve the future of the organisation while benefiting each of its employees.

A union was agreed between the two organisations which will look to improve competitiveness of the company by developing the skills of each of its individual employees.

Dailycer UK chief operating officer Peter Robertson met Deeside College principal David Jones to officially sign a partnership agreement earlier this month.

This will directly benefit all 170 employees of Dailycer UK, enabling each to embark on an individual training programme through Deeside College.

Funding for the training is under the Skills for the Workforce project, led by Deeside College and funded by the European Social Fund through the Welsh Government.

Employees of the organisation will have access to a range of training from health and safety and food manufacturing, management and engineering qualifications.

Mr Jones said: “Deeside College is committed to working with employers to support professional development to ensure local businesses continue to be competitive and profitable in an increasingly competitive global market.

“We are delighted to strengthen our links with Dailycer by signing this agreement and we look forward to continuing to meet their training and development needs through Acquire Training.”

Mr Robertson said: “We are delighted to enter into this partnership and thank both the Welsh Government and Deeside College for their support in making it possible.

“At Dailycer we have a strong, loyal and skilled team, but we need to continually develop both personally and professionally to remain competitive.

“The opportunity to work with our local college to enhance our people’s skills is a fantastic opportunity for all concerned and I look forward to the positive benefits over the next two years.”
