About Food Industry Technical Professional Degree Apprenticeship at Nottingham Trent University

Nottingham Trent University's Food Industry Technical Professional Degree Apprenticeship has been designed in conjunction with the food and drink manufacturing industry.

Degree Apprenticeships help employers to grow their own talent and nurture the employees who will go on to play a key role in their business. For many employers it provides an alternative option to graduate recruitment. Employees get the opportunity to gain a degree in BSc (Hons) Food Science and Technology, with the addition of hands-on experience gained through work.

Why choose this apprenticeship?

In such a fast moving industry there are excellent opportunities for career progression in this sector while at the same time there is also a real need for employees to be trained to degree level (classed as higher education). Apprenticeships can offer the best of both worlds.

Structured, quality assured education alongside practical on the job learning that benefits both the employer and the employee. Companies are recognising the benefit of investing in the development of their workforce and are prepared to take on Apprentices safe in the knowledge they will be gaining the skills and knowledge that will benefit their business.

Who is this aimed at?

The Degree Apprenticeship is equivalent to the first steps on the Higher Education ladder, and is aimed at applicants, aged 18 and over, interested in developing a scientific or technical career. Some Apprentices start in entry level roles whilst others are more experienced staff perhaps without formal qualifications in the field. Usually their career and responsibilities progress throughout the duration of the programme. It is ideal for those in roles covering quality assurance, technical, production and new product development.
