McDonald's launches qualifications prospectus

McDonald's has announced the launch of a prospectus outlining the full range of qualifications that it offers to its staff from adult certificates in Maths and English to a Foundation Degree in Managing Business Operations. According to the information provided, it will be available in careers advice centres across the UK alongside traditional academic prospectuses.

The prospectus is, the company explains, a culmination of work over the last five years which has seen McDonald's develop an education programme which offers qualifications ranging from BTECs, to the Level 2 Apprenticeship in Hospitality, which has seen more than 7,000 sign up to the scheme, and a Level 3 Diploma in Shift Management. Bringing breadth and depth to the offering, for the first time the company is now offering its restaurant managers the opportunity to gain a Foundation Degree in Managing Business Operations.

David Fairhurst, Chief People Officer, McDonald's UK & Northern Europe commented: "At McDonald's, we provide a learning ladder that our people can ascend while they work. There's no longer a need to choose between education and employment - people want to study at a stage in their life when it's convenient for them. Our full range of education programmes increases productivity, efficiency, and staff confidence and staff turnover is now lower than it's ever been. We're proud of all of our people - whether they're an 18-year-old Crew Member and qualified apprentice or a 42-year old Restaurant Manager with a Foundation Degree - which is why our new advertising reveals the real people behind the McDonald's uniform."
