What the association does
Advanced Milling Diploma
The Advanced Milling Diploma was developed in response to member companies' belief that UK Flour Millers should facilitate or provide training significantly beyond the level of the correspondence courses and craft skills certificate, in order to help produce the leading millers of the future. Thus, the aims of the programme include:
⮞ To provide further scope for the development of millers of the highest potential;
⮞ To improve the industry's skills base, meeting its changing training needs;
⮞ To provide a means by which millers may gain a greater technical understanding of flour functionality;
⮞ To apply advanced theoretical knowledge in practical skills training.
UK Flour Millers partners in delivery of the Diploma programme are Campden BRI and the Buhler Training Centre, Switzerland. To see the Diploma programme's fuller learning objectives, please download the document here.
Our fifth Diploma programme is due to start in 2021 with six candidates from six member companies. After an introductory session, they will enjoy residential weeks at Campden BRI and Buhler Training Centre before embarking on their Unit 3 project.
