Food Manufacture


Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes which involve training on the job to gain relevant skills and a recognised qualification whilst earning.

The University of Lincoln offers Food Manufacture Apprenticeships at the National Centre for Food Manufacturing, Holbeach Campus.

Ideally, you will already be employed in a role relevant to your apprenticeship training but we can assist you through the National Apprenticeship Service to find a suitable vacancy.

You can start on a work-based training programme at any time of the year but the technical certificate, which is a compulsory element, begins in September. Depending on your previous qualifications, you could do an Intermediate, Advanced or Higher Apprenticeship. More detailed information on entry requirements is available on individual course pages (see link below).

Ongoing support is provided throughout your apprenticeship by staff and workplace assessors. Regular reviews will be carried out to check progress against your individual learning plan which is developed in conjunction with your training coordinator.

All work places where apprentices are employed are checked to ensure that they provide an appropriate and safe working environment.
