In this quest we can see technology may not be the only thing unlocking new possibilities for the future of work, but it is a major driver. The food industry has seen its effect on work through deployments that enable new forms of e-commerce, automate pick-and-pack operations, manage supply chains, forecast production needs, and more. In the process of digital transformation, the industry is rearchitecting work to help enable humans and technology to collaborate more closely and effectively. As one might expect, this requires new kinds of skills—different from the ones traditionally sought by the industry. This is now true for frontline workers as well as for the other employees needed to build, implement, and run the technology systems transforming the industry in the first place.
Scratch allows for straightforward and effective project management. It is beneficial for software development, but you can apply it to pretty much anything. Scratch doesn’t exist in a vacuum. You have to consider reality, like time limitations. If you didn’t have time as a limiting factor, you could do all sorts of things with coding.
Scratch Programming exercises are an awesome language to get started with if you want to build a food management career (if you are a pure beginner or new to coding)

In this example we will code a project, which replicates the running of a food factory that produces cake.
This project will help you develop an understanding how coding is used in the food industry. As part of the activity participants will design a software in which the factory workers will be able to;
- Display the list of products
- Display the ingredient stocklist with quantities and prices
- Log ingredients that have been used
- Show stock to be replenished
- Log quality control results
In order to complete this task you you will need to go to the resources section and find the document titled: Scratch Beginners - Process. Follow the instruction from slide three onwards. You are also encouraged to look at the link: Guide to interview Techniques, this will help you with some interviewing techniques.
The Women Returners Toolkit is a very valuable step by step guide that will help you think about all aspects of the thnings you need to take into consideration as you prepare to return back to work. This toolkit completements with the task you are set to complete.
In the resources section watch the video titled: Women Returners Programme - Successful Career Development with Virtual Internships You will see a Skills Development programme that has been helping women over 25 return to work after a career break of six months or more. Numerous women have been able to return to work with confidence through project-based learning with a regional host company, skills workshops, panel discussions with successful women returners, a global employability curriculum and coaching calls, and networking events.
Even if you run a simple WordPress website, familiarising yourself with front-end languages goes a long way. Even if you’re not pursuing a strictly technical role, coding experience is an asset. It shows technical know-how, the ability to grasp abstract concepts, and that you can solve complex problems.
You have completed the first two buttons in the food management software. You are ready to move on to the intermediate level…

- You will develop enhanced communication skills. Coders must be able to communicate clearly to their team, colleagues, and clients.
- You become increasingly analytical by dissecting existing programs to understand the process to achieve the solution through written code.
