Foundation Degree in Chemical Science

Cogent and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) have developed an industry standard foundation degree in Chemical Science.

Cogent and MMU have designed the qualification working with leading employers so that business improvement, knowledge and skills are applied and embedded within the workplace and are measurable in short term business impact.

“Effective and continuous skills development are crucial requirements in delivering Pentagon’s business vision. We are pleased to acknowledge our support for MMU and Cogent in the development of a new Foundation Degree for our sector. The challenge is to develop an innovative and flexible programme which is highly focussed on the specific needs of our people. This will provide greater opportunities for upskilling the technical workforce and adding value. Potentially, a programme of this kind could become the new industry standard, and is an excellent addition to the Cogent Gold Standard which is already widely used throughout Pentagon.” Ronnie Fisher, Specialties General Manager, Pentagon Chemicals Specialties
