The first young people to undertake an apprentice training scheme at Greenvale's Floods Ferry site have achieved success.
The apprentices have gained their intermediate level apprenticeship in food industry skills.
Luke Cannon, Chelsea Elmer and Louise Youles, were selected to join the programme following a rigorous selection process at the end of 2014, which is set to be repeated in local schools this month.
Michelle Walker, Greenvale’s HR manager, said: “We are extremely impressed with how Luke, Chelsea and Louise have applied themselves over this past year. “These youngsters are the future of our business and we aim to give each apprentice knowledge and understanding to pursue a rewarding career in food manufacturing.”
Over the past year the apprentices have spent time working in various areas of potato production through a combination of study weeks and on-site assessments.
Having completed this stage, they are now progressing to the level three food safety module.
The scheme is delivered in association with the University of Lincoln, and was launched following the success of a similar programme at Greenvale’s Duns site in Berwickshire.
Once the apprentices have completed their training, they will be assigned roles within the company to which they are best suited.
