The Institute of Grocery Distribution has launched a academy offering customised training resources to supplement in-house training as well as courses run at its site in Hertfordshire.
Justin King, president of IGD and chief executive of Sainsbury’s, said: “Over the next 12 months IGD will train over 3,000 people, up by 50 per cent on a year ago. We’re committed to helping equip our industry with skills we need to build a new future.”
And IGD chief Joanne Denney-Finch said: “Through our flexible, participative approach to learning we offer a range of solutions that can perfectly supplement in-house programmes and raise performance to a new level. Best of all, a considerable amount of this is available for free.”
