McDonald's to Offer 'McGCSEs'

McDonald LogoMcDonald's will soon be offering fast-food qualifications equivalent to A levels, degrees and GCSEs in Britain. Students will be trained in-house and have to complete a series of practical modules under a system known as the Qualification Accreditation Framework.

McDonald's will train employees for a qualification in basic shift management which will include learning about the day-to-day running of a restaurant, including finance, hygiene and human resources. McDonald's will begin training employees for their basic training course later this month.

Critics have cast doubt on the validity of such qualifications, branded "McGCSEs", and suggested that they will have little worth outside the company which has offered them.
