The University of Lincoln's National Centre for Food Manufacturing is offering the UK's first degree apprenticeship in Food Engineering.

The Degree Apprenticeship in food engineering has been designed by employers to facilitate growth and development of talent within existing workforces as well as attract new recruits to companies through the joint offer of a career and completion of an academic qualification.

The programme is tailored to the needs of individuals aged 18 and over that are commencing an engineering career within the food industry or those presently working in the industry, looking to advance their engineering qualifications. The level 6 programme has three streams in line with the standard, with foci in mechanical, automation or production.

The Degree programme is normally a four-year period of study, followed by the apprenticeship end point assessment. Delivery is via blended learning, combining distance learning over 3 x 10 week periods utilising a range of delivery and assessment methods as appropriate to the content being explored and supported by online interactive tutorials with academic tutors. This online delivery is supported by 3 x 1 weeks on campus through the year to consolidate learning and offer collaborative and interactive aspects to reinforce the content from the online modules.
