Aldi to fund 60 produce industry apprenticeships
Aldi has announced plans to fund a further 60 produce industry apprenticeships over the next two years.
The supermarket is investing part of its Apprenticeship Levy into four new cohorts of students during the period to bring its total funding to close to £1 million over six years. The first set of cohorts will start next month.
Aldi will be working in collaboration with existing partner Management Development Services on the scheme. MDS equips trainees with experience in four different businesses as they work towards earning a leadership and management qualification accredited by the Chartered Management Institute.
At Aldi, trainees will work to develop management and leadership skills while learning the ropes in a range of position across the supply chain, marketing, technical and operations.
Aldi has already taken on five permanent employees from previous MDS intakes and plans to support two existing staff members through this year’s programme.
Kelly Stokes, recruitment director at Aldi UK, said: “The MDS scheme is highly respected and provides an excellent pathway for promising talent to achieve their potential within the sector, which is why we are pleased to be funding a further sixty apprenticeships over the next two years.
“The success of the programme is evident, with a number of MDS graduates now employed at Aldi to help us continue to deliver high-quality fresh produce at unbeatable prices.”
