What our apprentices say


10 months ago I decided to leave the building trade and become an Apprentice Butcher at ABP Ellesmere. I wanted a career that provided me with regular work and paid really well. I cant believe I’m nearly at the end of the programme and ready to become a qualified butcher. Thanks for supporting me through the programme Pete, Jake and all the managers that want me to progress at the company


I have been a Butchery Apprentice at ABP Ellesmere since September 2018 and I am really enjoying it. I have learnt so much about the meat industry in the last 10 months and now I’m preparing for my End Point Assessment. Hopefully, I’m going to pass the EPA and become a full-time butcher at the company


I am enjoying the course and really getting a good understanding of the industry. I am enjoying the skills I am learning and the knowledge I gain in the training sessions.


Thoroughly enjoying my apprenticeship programme


This is a good chance for me to progress in the industry, I am enjoying this opportunity.




As a butcher I am making progress and I feel more accomplished academically, especially in maths.
