Apprenticeships for England, Wales and Northern Ireland

Since May 2017 there has been a split in the way that apprenticeships in the UK are organised for the seafood industry.

In England we have moved over to a limited number of highly specific trailblazer standards-based apprenticeships covering Level 2 Fishmongering, Level 2 and 3 fish processing (Food and Drink Operations and related standards) and Level 2 and 3 Fish Frying (Production cooking and other hospitality standards).

For more information select the appropriate Trailblazer page from the Apprenticeship tab above.

In Wales and Northern Ireland we have retained the highly popular Fish and Shellfish Framework based apprenticeships for Levels 2 and 3. The frameworks in fish and shellfish proficiency skills adopt a pick and mix approach to the selection of units to make up a Certificate or Diploma based qualification carefully tailored to the needs of the business and the apprentice.

In Scotland we have a similar approach for apprenticeships using an almost (but not completely) identical set of frameworks to that in Wales and Northern Ireland.
