ABP UK and Leeds City College partnership goes from strength to strength

15 June 2015

Since announcing the partnership in 2014, ABP UK and Leeds City College have offered students invaluable experience in the meat and supply chain industry.

Since last October, ABP has employed three students from Leeds City College and helped several of its students achieve their level two and three butchery apprenticeships. 

Recently, industry professionals from ABP showed their support for the college again by delivering a guest lecture to students at the college - providing a practical demonstration on how to use the newly commissioned, state-of-the-art boning machine that has been installed at the college. 

Mandy Thompson, Graduate Recruitment at ABP, commented: 
“The on going partnership between ABP and Leeds City College has been instrumental in helping young people find their feet in the industry. There are a huge variety of roles available within the company and students aren’t always aware of the roles on offer. Guest lectures and demonstrations allow us to explain how their academic studies can help them to build a career in this industry and the practical experience we can offer is invaluable to them.”
