I think the apprenticeship is well organised to keep it interesting throughout. The structure and content have been excellent and the visits have been exceptionally well delivered to help my learning. It suited my learning style very well.

What do our Learners have to say?
Crosby Butchery Training has amazing trainers that are always very supportive and make the course very simple. I feel confident around them handling any concerns as shown when I recently swapped employers and I found my trainer was super helpful and understanding. I feel this apprenticeship is preparing me well to go onto the next level to become an Advanced Butcher.
My apprenticeship at Crosby is organised very well, with a clear schedule and lots of communication from my trainer. He always relates the sessions back to the standard to see what we have developed and shows me easier ways to approach types of butchery. I feel I can discuss any topic with Chris and he gives me direction. I think most importantly Crosby concentrate on my development.
Crosby Butchery Training provides very good apprenticeship resources. Kevin is a good mentor and explains things very well in my one on ones with him.
I really enjoyed my apprenticeship and had such a great time learning and working with Tara and Chris. They were always so easy to get hold of and would always get back to me if they were busy. I loved the Meat Science day at the office in Wolverhampton, I learnt so much and still to this day can tell customers about how hip suspension affects the meat quality! It has given me so much confidence in sharing my knowledge with colleagues and customers and has given me the chance to learn so much more than I expected to!
Having done my level 2 butchery apprenticeship with Crosby Training I was very keen to do my level 3 butchery apprenticeship with them.
The level 3 apprenticeship is much more theory-based which is quite challenging, but my tutor (Kevin) is always there whether in person or on a zoom meetings to answer any problems that might have occurred.
On my level 2 I had the opportunity to go the residential in Snowdonia. This was a great opportunity to meet other apprentices from different parts of the country and speak to them about what was going on within the industry. This has opened up my eyes to where I can go within the industry, and through the training I had from Crosby I have be given the opportunity to represent Great Britain in the World Butchery Challenge Competition over in the United States of America.
