Suffolk’s two leading breweries Greene King and Adnams have come together to help West Suffolk College develop a new apprenticeship course.

The brewery industry skills qualification is one of a range of courses the Bury St Edmunds college is developing for the food and drink industry.

The college aims to start the brewery apprenticeship in September with a course suitable for students looking to break into the industry and for current employees wanting in-service training.

Nikos Savvas, the college’s principal, said: “We are delighted to be introducing this new apprenticeship framework providing career opportunities within such an important industry for the region.”

Chris Houlton, managing director of Greene King Brewing and Brands, said: “It is great to be able to help create new generations of brewers in our home town.”

Sadie Lofthouse, head of PR at Southwold-based Adnams, said: “Our brewing team has an awful lot of knowledge and experience that it would be great to pass on to apprentices.”
