What our clients are saying

'The course content is ideal for our apprenticeship framework. Our apprentices are enjoying the course and the day release approach seems to work really well. I would recommend NTU as an academic partner to Industry and we are placing further apprentices with them in 2014.'

Theresa Winters
HR Business Partner R&D, Unilever

‘The courses have been designed with a balanced academia to industry knowledge ratio. Our student has shown a very positive work ethic since starting the course and it has allowed us to evaluate other routes for skills development in the educational process.’

Greg Hunn
Director of Technical Services, S & A Foods

‘Nottingham Trent University has been invaluable in helping us start down the Technical Apprenticeship route, helping us map across our technical competence framework and giving us funding solutions. A great experience which I hope to repeat year on year.’

Janette Graham
Learning and Development Manager – Technical, 2 Sisters Food Group

‘Pork Farms has worked on a number of projects with the team at the Brackenhurst campus, including hosting a training course for members of the development and commercial teams, involving both theoretical and hands-on experience using the industry leading facilities on campus.’

Andy Napthine
Head of Marketing, Pork Farms

‘The Food and Drink Forum has worked closely with Fusion to promote innovation. A joint seminar in EU labelling provided SMEs with both expertise and practical knowledge to allow businesses to make changes to their labels and meet new legislation requirements.’
