What does the programme involve?
On one hand, you’ll take on a real role as we continue to feed the nation during this difficult time. And you’ll enjoy getting paid while learning on-the-job and taking responsibility for people, projects and our operations. On the other hand, you’ll be an undergraduate student, studying towards a degree. It means you’ll enjoy a great career, gain your degree, and keep your bank account in the black - all at the same time.
Juggling full-time work and a degree course won’t be easy. But if you’re ambitious and hard working, it will be an experience you’ll never forget.

A Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship at the University of Bradford or Food Industry Technical Professional Degree Apprenticeship at Sheffield Hallam University.

What do I need?
