Equip yourself with the skills and knowledge to be part of the new bioeconomy and train while you work!


The Advanced Training Partnership (ATP) offers online training for biotech industries with a range of modules that you can study simply to increase your skillset and knowledge-base, or build up into a range of postgraduate qualifications.

Finding low carbon alternatives to petroleum-based products underpins the growing green economy. This makes it an exciting time to be part of the rapidly developing Biotech Industries. However, biorefining is a highly technical field and the successful growth of the industry is resulting in a lack of sufficient staff with the technical knowledge necessary to support its expansion. This training programme has been designed in consultation with existing UK industries to address this skills shortage. Since this programme is aimed at people who are already working, training is delivered via distance learning.

Courses include:
