Conferencing + Events Feature — 15 February 2018

Are you a Levy Paying Employer? Let us help you develop your talent.

Join us at our Apprenticeships Launch event on 23rd March 2018 to be held at the new Agri-Epi Centre on the Harper Adams University campus from 8.30am to 12noon.  We are delighted to be able to showcase our new Degree and Postgraduate Apprenticeships for:

  • Food Engineering – level 6

The new Food & Drink Advanced Engineer Degree Apprenticeship enables candidates to qualify with a BEng (Hons) Food Engineering qualification, typically five years part time. Apprentices can take a Mechanical, Production or Automation pathway with specialist knowledge and skills.

  • Food Industry Technical Professional – level 6

The Food Industry Technical Professional Degree Apprenticeship leads to a BSc (Hons) degree in Food Science and Technology, studied over five years, part-time. This includes work-based modules and all apprentices take part in developing their academic and professional skills at the outset.

  • Postgraduate Engineering – level 7

The Postgraduate Engineer Apprenticeship is perfect for any graduates already in business who are now ready to advance their career into Engineering Management, or fits really well with new graduates stepping into their first engineering role. Apprentices on block release can also obtain Chartered Engineering status. Successful candidates gain a Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering Business Management, plus the opportunity to step up to an MSc at the end, so the learning can continue in their industry setting.

At this event, you will meet the Course delivery teams, learn more about the structure and content of our new Degree Apprenticeships and tour the campus with demonstrations from our Food and Engineering experts. We will have industry speakers present who will talk about the collaboration for these new apprenticeships and how we work together. A brief agenda is detailed below, but we will send you a full agenda once registered.
