Norbrook invests in workforce through NVQ qualifications
Locally based pharmaceutical company Norbrook Laboratories is investing in its workforce through work based learning qualifications that are delivered in conjunction with Southern Regional College.
Norbrook is one of Northern Ireland’s success stories with operations across the globe and is further supporting its staff through a series of three NVQs in the fields of Laboratory and Associated Technical Activities; Performing Manufacturing Operations and Business and Administration.
The nationally agreed standards of competence allow selected individuals to achieve academic recognition from their employer through developmental support in the work place.
The standards allow individuals to make positive differences to business operations conducted on a daily basis whilst being remunerated at the same time, a progressive approach during these harsh financial times.
Elizabeth Moran, training manager at Norbrook commented, “We feel passionately about investing in our workforce across all disciplines.
“These NVQ’s are the latest in our work based training schemes that help to support our business whist also helping our employees gain the experience that is often quoted as being critical for obtaining employment in the first place.
She added, “When our employees undertake an NVQ, it is inspiring, motivational and helps to maintain an adequate skill match for job satisfaction.”
The NVQs are a further addition to the Norbrook Apprenticeship Scheme launched in 2013, another progressive strategy made in collaboration with Southern Regional College which addresses the lack of job opportunities in the Greater Newry Area. Commonly these schemes are aimed at high school graduates. For recruitment opportunities visit www.norbrook.co.uk
