Warburtons Management Degree Apprenticeship launched

One of ‘Britain’s Best Loved Food Brands’ have been baking bread since 1876 and have now partnered with Pearson Business School to launch a new Management Degree Apprenticeship scheme.

This great opportunity offers students the chance to learn and earn with the largest bakery in the UK.  Warburtons have a range of over 70 products, including bread, crumpets, fruit loaf, muffins, teacakes and wraps. This four-year Degree Apprenticeship is designed to give student-apprentices the experience of working for one of the most recognisable companies in the UK, whilst studying for an Honours Degree at the same time.

Two passionate and ambitious individuals will be chosen to complete this new Degree Apprenticeship and will also help deliver excellence and contribute to the success of Warburtons. Based at their Enfield Bakery, the student will complete a two-year degree in Business Management, gain a wealth of management knowledge and experience as either a Bakery Team Leader or a Driver OperationsTeam Leader and they will also build up their network of professional contacts.

Tuition fees will be paid for by Warburtons and the student-apprentices will be paid a competitive starting salary and rising each year through to year 4, with time off for study. They’ll also graduate debt-free, as their fees will be covered. 

This Degree Apprenticeship is a 4 year programme which will develop students through various levels of management. The apprentices will be working across a range of different functions and teams in Operations: including Manufacturing, Plant and Engineering, Warehousing, Distribution, Quality and Technical and Health and Safety to broaden your knowledge and understanding in all areas of the operation. The job role will start in October 2019 and the degree will begin in January 2020.

Degree apprenticeships are a growing and developing part of Higher Education and part of the future at Pearson Business School. The Warburtons Degree Apprenticeship expands on the hugely successful portfolio delivered by Pearson Business School, including the Senior Leaders Management Degree Apprenticeship (Guy’s and St Thomas), Moët Degree Apprenticeship, L’Oreal Degree Apprenticeship, Rotational Degree Apprenticeship, BBC Degree Apprenticeship, Mondelez Degree Apprenticeship, International Rotational Degree Apprenticeship,  Millwall FC Degree Apprenticeship, Red Carnation Hotel Degree Apprenticeship, Moorfields Degree Apprenticeship and the Pearson Degree Apprenticeship.

About Pearson Business School

Education powered by industry experience.We're transforming higher education.

As a FTSE 100 company, immersed in industry, we do things differently. Industry engagement is at the core of everything that we do, and it’s what sets us apart.

We offer all full-time degree students guaranteed internships*, so they gain experience during their studies. Our degree apprentices also get to work within a company throughout their studies, so they gain valuable experience, learning on the job. We help our students to build their own professional networks; they’re taught by well-connected industry experts, and they get to make contacts at industry workshops led by some of the world’s most reputable organisations.  We work with industry giants from Unilever, L’Oréal, and Sony Pictures, to WPP, Lloyds of London and IBM. Alongside their academic studies, it’s the experiences like these that help our students to develop the knowledge and skills they’ll need to succeed, as well as inspire them, so they have the drive and ambition to get ahead.

Our students are enterprising and entrepreneurial. They get to work with our in-house business incubator The Access Platform, and many have set up their own companies too, like Kickpush and Yaantu and even social enterprises like Once Upon a Doug.

Our alumni have gone on to work for brands such as Nestlé, Sainsbury’s, Microsoft, Dyson, Not on the High Street, the BBC, Snapchat, Wincanton and General Mills.

Industry engagement drives us; it’s not just what we do, it’s who we are. And it is what will take us, and our students, into the future.
