What will I learn?
An apprenticeship in Game and Wildlife will provide the essential skills required by an Under Keeper.
These include monitoring and maintaining game populations (birds and deer) and their habitat; constructing, maintaining and repairing structures and surfaces; controlling pests; assisting in game shooting activities; caring for animals used in support of gamekeeping and wildlife management.
An apprenticeship will also help develop a professional working style, safe working practices, awareness of the work environment and communicating effectively with colleagues and customers.
Other skills will include functional skills needed in the work place (Maths, English, ICT) and specialist qualifications such as the NPTC Certificate of Competence in All Terrain Vehicle Handling and the Lantra Certificate in Wild Game Meat Hygiene.
