The Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Leeds Metropolitan University Faraday Centre for Retail Excellence to deliver future development courses for packaging professionals.
The partnership will develop a higher level master’s course which focus on packaging design but also explores the wider agenda including management of innovation, sustainability and marketing. The courses will be targeted at professionals already working in sectors such as packaging, engineering and technology who are looking to continue studying and keep up with new trends and thinking in these areas as the industry evolves.
Kevin Vyse, Managing Director, IoPP UK, said, “These courses will complement our portfolio of Professional Development programmes to help keep packaging professionals educated, informed and connected.”
Professor Cathy Barnes at the Faraday Centre for Retail Excellence said, “This partnership with IoPP will deliver exciting opportunities to add to our portfolio and we are looking forward to supporting the leaders of the future.”
