Entries open for 2019 packaging scholarship
Packaging technologists, designers and engineers in New Zealand have the opportunity to complete a Diploma in Packaging Technology to the value of $9000 by entering into Packaging New Zealand’s annual scholarship program for 2019. The diploma is offered through the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP).
“The Diploma in Packaging Technology is a Level 5 qualification which is internationally recognised for those wishing to pursue a career in the packaging industry or for those who are already in the industry and who wish to extend their knowledge and expertise,” said Harry Burkhardt, President of Packaging New Zealand. He continued, it “prepares students to take responsibility for packaging operations at any level through the supply chain. The qualification is comprehensive and provides an opportunity to study the principles of packaging, packaging materials and packaging processes.”
Students come from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines, and are typically experienced practitioners or managers in technical, sales/marketing, QA, purchasing, engineering or design. Delegates who successfully complete the Diploma in Packaging Technology not only demonstrate their commitment to their career and to the industry, but also equip themselves for senior positions within the packaging industry.
Burkhardt said Packaging New Zealand “recognises that investment in the packaging industry starts within its people. We strongly encourage everyone in the industry to apply for this scholarship.”
Entries are now open for the 2019 Packaging New Zealand Scholarship, with submissions closing on 8 March. The winner will be announced at the 2019 Packaging Innovation & Design Awards, held at the SOFITEL Wentworth on 30 April.
