Forensics in food science under examination

CEd has begun working with Northampton College on its Level 3 Applied Science and Level 4 Forensic and Criminal Investigation Courses. The latter requires many of the skills needed by food scientists and microbiologists. With crime-fighting CSI-style posts limited, there are many alternative opportunities for forensic minds in chilled food production. CEd will talk to students about careers in the food sector –something not normally considered by those on forensic science courses.

It’s a timely intervention as the students will be making their decisions on universities, apprenticeships and employment over the next six months.

Meanwhile, talks continue with Blisworth Community Primary School to develop a pilot to showcase CEd sustainability resources and experiments with the aim of offering it out more widely to schools.
