Woodway UK have launched their new training course, PackAcademy, with the inaugural sessions taking place last month. PackAcademy is a Train The Trainer course constructed and delivered by Woodway UK.
Held over two days in their Packaging Innovation Centre, this course is offered to customers to increase the packaging skills and knowledge of their teams. The main course objective is to enable these candidates to share these skills with their team upon returning to their workplace. Debenhams, who have worked with Woodway on relevant course content, were the first customer to send six of their packaging team on the course. All six were awarded a certificate for successfully completing the course.
Ian Harrison, Technical Manager (Woodway UK) and Course Leader explains, “Working with Debenhams, Woodway have created a course designed to teach best-practice with a mix of theory and practical work. Our Packaging Innovation Centre is fully equipped, enabling candidates to use a variety of packaging products and learn how to identify best-fit solutions in their own packing environment.”
Gary Davenport, Operations Director (Debenhams) said, “We work closely with Woodway on all aspects of our packaging operations and this latest addition to their service is a valuable tool. The teams that attended the course have returned with greater knowledge and enthusiasm which they are sharing with their colleagues.”
