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 Milling Academy, Switzerland. To see the Diploma programme's fuller learning objectives, please download the document.
Our fifth Diploma programme started in 2021 with six candidates from six member companies. After an introductory session, they enjoyed residential weeks with our two partners, successfully completing Units 1 and 2, and are now engaged in their Unit 3 projects.
Final assessment is scheduled for early 2023. Late 2024 may see the start of a sixth Diploma programme, applications for which will be sought in late 2023.
