Trainee Dairy Technologists will finish the course with the skills and knowledge to carry out a Technician role to a high standard. Throughout the interview process and the course itself, it is essential that the critically important core Eden values are instilled into our students. These are Passion & Pride, Pioneering Attitude, Integrity & Respect and Shared Learning & Community Spirit.
As the course has a wide range of modules across different areas, students will take stronger interests in some subjects than others. As a result we have seen recent Eden graduates go into roles such as Quality Manager, Process Team Leader, Lean Co-ordinator and Cheese Development Technologists.
The 1st cohort of Trainee Dairy Engineers will graduate in 2016, where they will likely move into multi-skilled Engineering Technician roles.
Eden students join as full time, permanent and salaried staff rather than a fixed term contract. Starting salary is a very competitive £16,000 and Arla will pay all tuition fees and college accommodation. Salaries on completion of the course will vary but many of our graduates will earn between £30-40,000 in their first positions.
Opportunities are available to Top-Up to a full BSc degree and MSc at Copenhagen University.
