EFIA help attract young people to industry

The European Flexographic Industry Association (EFIA) is encouraging young people to consider a career within the UK print industry with support from its online training academy. The EFIA e-learning solution includes a wide range of 14 modules, which can be selected individually or as a complete course, which range from inks to anilox rolls and reprographics to film substrates. Each one is designed and written by leading flexo print experts from the industry, providing students with the latest technology and application knowledge available.

Debbie Waldron-Hoines, EFIA Consultant Managing Director, said, “The print and packaging industries are becoming more advanced so more detailed knowledge is required. These are exciting, complex and vibrant industries and should be supported by an appropriate training and education programme to attract young talent and retain them. The EFIA academy is a true reflection of the commitment to invest in the skills of our current and future employees.”

Designed for use by the entire print and packaging supply chain, from designer to printer to retailer, the EFIA academy is recognised by all leading flexo printing companies as the best tailored training solution for the industry. The EFIA e-learning solution has seen some 200 students pass through the programme in the last two years with some students now achieving certEFIA through the integration of a CPD Programme.
