The 2 Sisters in-house apprenticeship team is about to launch its third Level 3 course in management to add to the advanced food and drink process operator standard and food technology standard.
The food manufacturer already offers a wide range of apprenticeship schemes at different levels across their business from food technologists to food operatives, and from engineering to accountancy.
“The next generation of food entrepreneurs will have a fantastic opportunity to carve out a pathway and develop a stimulating and impressive career in the food industry,” said Janette Graham, who leads the apprenticeship team. “We can offer something for everybody, from an advanced apprenticeship for new entrants into the food industry right through to an MBA course for our senior management team.
“This is an exciting time and the apprenticeships will enable us to showcase the food industry as a top career destination for young people and promote the roles within our business that have become more difficult to recruit.”
The 2 Sisters’ apprenticeship courses are aimed at a mix of new starters and pre-existing colleagues at sites across England. In addition to the in-house scheme, it also offers engineering using an external provider, degree apprenticeships in food industry technology, food operation management, a higher apprenticeship in accountancy and, more recently, an MBA in partnership with Aston University.
