MARKET TALK: Training trailblazers, catering engineer standards and the IT crowd

In this week’s episode of Market Talk, Nick Archer, director at Archer Catering Systems, and Adam Mason, director general at Ceda, join us for a special discussion on training and apprenticeships in the catering equipment sector.

Ceda has been instrumental in developing industry training standards to meet CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) card requirements following the Construction Leadership Council’s (CLC) decision to discontinue the existing CRO (Construction Related Occupation) card scheme.

Mr Archer and Mr Mason outline the journey that the organisation has been on to create standards that accurately reflect the work of project managers and catering engineers, while outlining how the training is delivered to the market and the level of commitment entailed.

They also discuss the role that apprenticeships have to play in the commercial catering equipment sector and the skills that engineers are likely to need when installing and servicing kitchen equipment in the next five years.

Ceda is organising an open Zoom presentation on apprenticeships at 10.30am on Wednesday 19 May. Anybody wishing to attend can email

The apprenticeship and training standards schemes are open to both Ceda members and non-members.
