Attracting talent

The Great Cornish Food Academy will help explode the myth that working in food and drink is a poor career choice, by:

    • Lighting a spark for budding food entrepreneurs.
    • Reigniting interest in much-needed skills such as fishing and farming, butchery and bakery, with real, have-a-go experiences for career seekers of all ages.
    • Showcasing the brilliant variety of opportunities and earnings potential across the sector.
    • Helping employers hire and hold onto the right people.

    We’re working with schools and colleges to offer courses and “have-a-go" opportunities at all levels, from 14- to 16-year-olds taking the first steps towards their future careers to older people considering a career change or simply curious to know more about working in food.
