Transforming the apprenticeship training system for butchers in the UK.
Aubrey Allen has played a key role in pioneering the apprenticeship standard for the butchery industry. Our apprenticeship standard replaces old frameworks as part of the Government's employer driven Trailblazer Strategy. Since 2010 there have been 1.8 million apprenticeship starts and the Butchery Trailblazer is leading by example in the development and delivery of high quality apprenticeships that give apprentices the skills, knowledge and behaviours we require and the opportunity to develop successful careers. The new standard has maintained the heritage and history of the art of butchery whilst delivering a modern day apprenticeship. It gives the opportunity to develop excellence for the future sustainability and growth of the meat industry.
