Apprenticeships
The Fruit Sector

Hadlow College is proud to launch a unique three-year Fruit Growers Supervisory & Management Programme. Entrants will be trained for supervisory and middle management roles with prospects for further progress in the fruit industry.

The trainees will be paid directly by their employers throughout the three years and successful applicants will enjoy the guarantee of a job at the end of their training.

This new programme has been devised and structured with the help of leading fruit producers. It is a privately sponsored programme with each sponsor providing £10,000 per trainee. The extensive selection process will include interviews with sponsors, employers and Hadlow College personnel.

An expression of interest is invited from people of all ages.  Motivation and the desire for a progressive career are two of the most important factors. There are no education barriers and, because the programme is privately funded, we are able to include applications from graduates and others with higher level qualifications.

How do I find out more?

For further information, or to express an interest in joining this unique scheme, please contact the College.
