The Lion Training Passport scheme has defined minimal course content for each of the mandatory short courses listed on the Lion Training Passport. In order to ensure that courses delivered meet these standards each course needs to be approved if delivered either internally or by an external organisation.
It is paramount to the continued success of the scheme that even once a course is approved the scheme ensures that the training being delivered meets the required standards. The course approval period is initially five years, after which the course will require re-approval. Minimal Minimum course content is continually reviewed by the management group and approved providers are expected and will be required to demonstrate that updated standards are met. It is expected that approved providers of courses have good knowledge of the Lion Standard, linking topics to the standards where possible during delivery.
The course approval process is applicable where a poultry company or an external training provider delivers short courses. Tutors approved by the scheme who hold a valid training qualification and can demonstrate competence in the topic being delivered must deliver approved courses.
