In addition to our qualified academic managers and teaching staff these include learner support staff, counsellors, vocationally qualified technicians and qualified professionals in roles such as finance, funding, estates, health and safety and human resources.

A chain of large holiday camps in the United Kingdom. Butlins was founded by Billy Butlin to provide affordable holidays for ordinary British families in Skegness.
Butlins is one of the most recognised brands in the UK holiday market, offering short breaks all year round at three great British seaside resorts. Our founder, Sir Billy Butlin, opened his first resort in Skegness in 1936. Right from the start his aim was to bring colour and happiness to the lives of the nations’ hard working families.
To fulfil this promise to his guests, he knew there should be ‘someone to look after them always’. So, our famous Redcoats were born, welcoming guests with a friendly smile, easing them into their holiday mood with a helping hand and a cheery word. To this day, our Redcoats take centre stage, but we believe everyone on the Butlins team should share this sunny disposition; a ‘nothing’s too much trouble’ attitude aimed at relaxing our guests and making them feel cared for.
Our three resorts in Bognor Regis, Minehead and Skegness attract over 1.5 million guests every year, with many guests returning year after year. We know it’s our teams true intent to delight that brings them back. This is why we make it our top priority to hire the right attitude; those with natural ability to ‘host’ regardless of their role within the business.
One of our key values is to be a great company to work for. We value our workforce and are fully committed to developing our people and allowing them to show their full potential. We believe in a genuine learning culture and underpin this with Learning and Development opportunities for all our employees through our Building Winning Teams programme. We offer opportunities at all levels – from key numeracy and literacy skills, to vocational qualifications, management and leadership as well as graduate programmes. In addition, our learning culture encourages development through work-based activity such as our Lean manufacturing programme, where teams focus on obtaining manufacturing excellence through improved operational performance.

Working closely with a number of universities, we give undergraduates the opportunity to gain a 12 month placement with particular focus on Pig Farming, Food Production and New Product Development. Successful completion of an industrial placement can also lead to a place on our Graduate Programme once they have finished their university course.
We offer positions with real responsibility and accountability, as well as valuable experience, fully supported by a Line Manager, HR Manager and Mentor.
Most recently, industrial placement student Emma Slater received the ‘Best Placement Award’ in recognition of the work she carried our during her year at Dalehead Foods, in the BQP Technical Team.
The 21-year-old, who has applied to top-up to a full honours degree, said: “I’m very pleased and extremely grateful that I have won this prize, but I would not have won it without the support of my employers and the opportunity they provided me with.
“Having done my placement, I feel like I have progressed and developed both my personal and professional skills which will benefit me in my future career.”
Past placement students have worked on many projects that have made a real and valuable contribution to our business. These include the development of a range of barbecue products that have made it to the supermarket shelves.
Our dedication to education within the agricultural sector is reinforced by our Harper Adams Scholarship – offered each year to a student who has a specific interest in pig and lamb production.

With over four decades of success within the agricultural sprayer market, Househam is able to combine cutting edge technology devised by some of the industry's best engineers with precision manufacturing and speed to market.
The Vision of Househam
The challenges faced by agriculture are massive. The ever increasing world population relies on the food agriculture produces and this represents a challenge for the industry, globally, unlike any other industry has hitherto faced.
However, bringing more and more land into agricultural use can have detrimental effects of the environment by encouraging deforestation, which releases more CO2 into the atmosphere, and the draining of natural wetlands both of which increase the risk of flooding.
By protecting and improving the vast areas of soil currently under cultivation and maximising its productive capacity with advances in plant breeding, nutrient management, crop protection products and innovative application technology, we should be able to go a long way towards producing higher volumes of food which is healthier, safer and produced in a more environmentally friendly and sustainable manner.
Our aim is to use new and innovative technology to enable us, as leading manufacturers of crop sprayers, to produce machines which enable growers not only to apply crop protection products very accurately, but also to help protect soil structure by reducing soil compaction. Our links with the leading agricultural research bodies and our continuing dialogue with practical farmers and contractors helps us to produce leading edge crop sprayers which meet the needs of users around the world.

Micronclean, based in Skegness started as a local laundry and has been owned and managed by one family since the 1920’s. At that time, the business concentrated on hand finished laundry services focusing on quality, innovation, attention to detail and customer care. These attributes underpin all the products and services Micronclean now offer which range from our traditional hand finished linen through laundered garment services for both industrial clients and high-tech pharmaceutical companies throughout the UK to cleanroom consumables which are sold in the UK and overseas.
Our ongoing evolution started in the 1970’s when we introduced the first tunnel finisher into Skegness which had the benefit of drying garments using steam thereby doing away for the need for ironing. Tunnel finishers are now the industry standard way of drying garments. We also were the first to introduce Polycotton garments, now the predominant fabric for workwear.
During the 1980’s we built the first cleanroom laundry and we were the first laundry to adopt ISO9001.
The 1990’s saw the introduction of garment tracking and we were the first laundry to use Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology through which we track individual garments in our in-house developed Protrack system. We remain the only major laundry to scan garments both into and out of our sites. We were the first laundry to adopt ISO14001 environmental standard.
The building of Louth in the 2000’s saw the development of the first (and only) large scale ISO6 cleanroom laundry, Louth’s sortation system remains the most sophisticated in the UK. Alongside this we developed an innovative automotive paintshop garment washing process which remains the most effective for that environment. We achieved Risk analysis and Bio-contamination Control (RABC) accreditation, ISO14065, the first Laundry in the UK and still the only cleanroom Laundry to do this. We introduced a patented Mopping system and multipack syringe packs, both of which have genuinely changed the dynamic of the market.
The current decade has seen the introduction of our alcohol trigger sprays for our clean room consumables customers which have challenged 30 years of received wisdom and have transformed the market place. Our Alpha and Beta disinfectant range have allowed customers to move away from chlorine based solutions which have major problems with health and safety due to the vapour as well as the corrosive properties of chlorine based disinfectants.
Micronclean has a turnover of just over £25m and employs close to 450 people across the UK, the majority of these being based at our three main production sites, all based in Lincolnshire. We have an active Continuous Improvement programme driving business improvement for our customers.
Looking to the future we are confident of growth not only in the UK but also in export markets as we seek to leverage not only our laundered garment service and consumables sales but also use our unique laundry knowledge to deliver business opportunities in overseas markets in line with our mission statement.
