Tresham College has just signed a deal to help manage the apprenticeship levy pot for crisp and snack company Tayto.
This will provide a wide range of employment opportunities for internal staff at Tayto as well as young people seeking careers within engineering and manufacturing.
“We hope this will be the next stage of a successful business relationship with Tayto where Tresham can make sure the Apprenticeship Levy they have to pay is put to good use in providing them with engineers and team leaders of the future,” said Julie Hoult, Head of Business Development Tresham College.
The Northern Ireland company has one of its UK manufacturing bases in Corby, Northants. Tayto Group Operations Director, Martin McElhinney, said:
“Since our early discussions this year, Tresham has led the way with their proactive approach and ability to take on board our particular requirements. I am sure it will lead us to great success.”
