Sheffield Hallam has launched the first UK packaging degree apprenticeship.
Sheffield Hallam is one of the UK’s leading providers of degree apprenticeships – working with over 270 employers to train hundreds of apprentices with the latest skills for a range of sectors.
As a result, we have been selected to develop the first UK degree- level packaging industry degree apprenticeship.
We were chosen by a steering group of renowned industry organisations, who recently developed the Apprenticeship Standard in the field. They include Nestle, Smurfit Kappa, Premier Foods, the National Skills Academy for Food & Drink (NSAFD) and EFIA UK Ltd.
Through this course students will understand the importance of packaging; how it can contain, protect, promote and preserve products. They will also gain an advantage in an industry with a shortage of young talent and be at the forefront of a more sustainable future.
