Who is the course for?

All ages, in paid employment.

Do I need any formal qualifications?

Capable of completing level 1 maths and English as determined by diagnostic screening. The key role for a Stockperson is to raise the animals with optimal welfare and consideration for their needs throughout the different stages of their life. This is practical work involving a combination of technology and manual labour.

What will I study on the course?

A stockperson will be responsible for their own work, but will have close supervision. As animal welfare is a priority on farm, key to being a good stockperson is understanding your limits and knowing when to ask for help. Working with live animals presents a range of challenges to overcome and ensures no two days will be the same. This standard follows a core and options approach. The core covers the generic requirements for looking after animals competently and the sector options provide more specific needs for different livestock. One option will be taken in addition to the core skills to complete this apprenticeship, which provides a solid foundation for a range of progression opportunities within the industry.

Bespoke programmes delivered mainly in the workplace and college attendance at Kirkley Hall campus.

Progress reviews take place every 8 12 weeks. An End Point Assessment made up of Practical Observation, a Knowledge Test and a Professional Discussion Informed by Portfolio.
