Associate Membership

Association with the National Skills Academy for Food & Drink opens up valuable new opportunities for your organisation. It not only adds to your brand reputation for taking industry skills seriously but provides proven new tools to make a direct contribution to the success of your own stakeholders.

Closer association also offers you the chance to underline your organisation’s commitment to the future by raising the profile and perception of industry careers and industry study pathways among young people.

We already work alongside many of you and know you share our goal of improving the competitive position of industry businesses and individual sub sectors through cost-effective access to workforce skills training of the highest quality.

As an Associate Member, you can also choose to take a greater profile in the industry’s Tasty Careers outreach programme. Tasty Careers is taking the lead in shaping understanding of the industry as a career destination of choice providing instant access to available vacancies and guidance on study pathways into the sector.

You can choose to associate yourself with either our nationally recognised Academy brand or our highly successful Tasty Careers brand, it’s up to you. Plus you’ll be joining a unique industry community where you can enjoy a stronger relationship with both the Academy and industry businesses on strategic skills issues.

Most importantly, you don’t have to break the bank. Membership with the Academy brand is priced at just £1,000 per annum and with the Tasty Careers brand, only £500 per annum.

That’s just £1,500 for both packages.
