Pork processor Tulip is expanding its apprenticeship programme and is in search of new butchers, engineers and technical specialists.

The business is now offering 24 butchery, 15 engineering and five technical apprenticeships at various locations across its UK operation to start in the autumn and is keen to hear from young people looking to take up the opportunity.

We have been working in partnership with the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills together with the Department of Education and other industry leaders over the last few years to develop the Trailblazers standard, which offers candidates relevant formal qualifications to support them in building a career in the food industry, said Tulips group learning and development manager Ally Patterson.

Candidates are assessed throughout their apprenticeship to ensure they learn the knowledge and relevant skills in their chosen career.

For butchery apprentices there is an independent assessment at the end of the programme on knowledge, skills and behaviours, which is a brand new concept introduced via the Trailblazer standard, which will help improve standards across the industry.

Anyone interested in applying for an apprenticeship should visit www.tfng.co.uk for further information and to register their interest.
