We've trained well over 1,500 delegates from hundreds of different agrifood businesses across the UK from single person consultancy and farming businesses to multinational manufacturers and retailers. Our participants have occupied a wide range of job roles across the entire agrifood supply chain.
The AFTP’s training portfolio has been designed to recognise the needs of the agrifood industry, which is reflected both in the range of topics and the flexibility we offer for individuals, whilst fully recognising their busy, professional lives.
Our portfolio includes:
The option for courses to be taken as continuing professional development opportunities or as credit bearing modules for academic qualifications.
Opportunities for participants to build qualifications over time and progress through Postgraduate Certificates to Diplomas, taught or research-based Master’s Degrees and finally Professional Doctorates.
