New training spec launched

THE Scottish Government has unveiled new training requirements for the Personal Licence Holders (PLH) qualification.

The new training spec, developed by sector skills council People 1st after a 14-month consultation with the industry, includes stricter rules on how training for the PLH qualification is delivered, a tougher assessment process, and the need for a ‘refresher course’ after five years.
Trade groups including the SLTA, SBPA and Scottish Grocers’ Federation, were on the steering group that helped develop the new requirements.
