OP Chocolate

Apprentices at OP Chocolates can be assured of sweet success after the company developed an apprenticeship programme with the objective of equipping its employees with the skills needed to progress into senior roles in the future.

Working with learning provider Network Training Services, the company has been encouraging employees to return to education and develop themselves.

Employees have learned about the engineering elements of the machinery and presented to the management team about projects they’ve been involved in.

“The business is looking to improve the skills and knowledge of its entire staff. Before putting the first group on to the apprenticeship programme, very few staff had formal qualifications,” said Deborah Shaughnessy, coaching and development manager.
