"I have acquired more technical skills in preparing meat. The Apprenticeship has definitely made me better at my job."Emily, Butcher Apprentice
Whether you are a school leaver, an employer, or someone looking to pursue your career in butchery, we have the expertise in helping you to develop industry skills.
Butchery is one of the oldest crafts in the world and is often where innovation meets tradition to create an industry full of character and camaraderie that plays a critical role in our social and economic future.
Butchers work in the meat and poultry industry, which is worth several billion pounds in the UK and employs thousands of workers in the farm to fork supply chain. Qualified butchers can look forward to rewarding careers in a range of environments with different types of employers.
Officially opened in 2011, covering 2,520 square foot, our Game and Wildlife Centre provides industry standard facilities to practise all aspects of meat processing. The larder, cold store and specialist butchery preparation room provides students with first-hand experience of larder and meat processing work.
