Apprenticeship Success at CAFRE

February 4, 2020

It’s National Apprenticeship Week 2020 and a great opportunity to discover the benefits apprenticeships can bring to businesses and individuals.

At CAFRE Loughry Campus Level 2 Food and Drink Apprenticeships are certainly proving to be popular and beneficial for Agri-Food Businesses and their employees. The Level 2 Apprenticeships offer employers and their employees the opportunity to ‘earn as they learn’ whilst achieving a recognised qualification. Agri-Food Businesses benefit from developing employees and upskilling them to meet the challenges of a fast paced and dynamic industry.


Stacey Hall and Sigita Vitkute, both employed by Linden Foods Dungannon, have recently completed their Level 2 Food and Drink Apprenticeship, having followed the Meat and Poultry pathway. Both Apprentices have recognised the benefits of achieving this qualification and have been involved in completing company projects that have utilised the knowledge and skills they have developed through their studies. Having clearly demonstrated the motivation, commitment and enthusiasm needed to complete a qualification whilst working, Stacey and Sigita are keen to further develop their careers.
