Our Food Industry Skills course is designed to help students learn all the fundamental basics across all food production methods and key supporting functions. There are opportunities to learn in a practical working environment at our own onsite cheese-making facility, as well as in work placements at various local food manufacturers.

As well as this, we also have access to a fully functioning bakery.
