This Topic Page provides contact details of Seafish recognised apprenticeship providers and (for England only) the new trailblazer apprenticeship training providers.
In Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, apprenticeships in the onshore fish and shellfish industry are based on the fish and shellfish framework qualifications.
In England, since May 2017, apprenticeships for the fish and shellfish sectors have been based on the new trailblazer standards for
food operations (processing sector),
production cooking (fish frying).
