Diversify your workforce with degree apprentices
Samworth Brothers produces a wide range of quality chilled and ambient foods.
We've worked with Samworth Brothers to create two bespoke degree apprenticeship programmes that combine degree level study with valuable experience gained in a professional job role.
Our apprentices work across different areas of the businesses over 3 years whilst studying for either a Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship or Food Industry Technical Professional Degree Apprenticeship.
“Degree apprenticeships give our business an opportunity to develop individuals within the workplace, developing them with our priorities and principles while gaining valuable work experience that is backed up with academic study.
We find our apprentices inspire existing colleagues as they bring fresh perspectives, creativity and a real drive to learn and develop as they begin their careers.
The Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship programme provides apprentices with a unique opportunity to put the knowledge they have learnt through academic study straight into practice, effectively building and developing skills from day one. As a business, we tailor their training to meet our specific business requirements so the programme fully supports our business objectives.
I would absolutely recommend other businesses to take on apprentices. It’s a fantastic initiative to help young talent gain work experience and a degree at the same time. It helps to diversify our workforce by bringing in young leaders who are keen to move up the career ladder.”
