Minced meat on butcher paper with basil and pepper, selective focus

The OAL qualifications development team has been hard at work to craft two brand new level 2 qualifications to support the butcher apprenticeship standard.

The newly released qualifications include a level 2 diploma in butchery and a level 2 diploma in knife skills for food processing. Both have been mapped to the butcher apprenticeship standard.

You can view the qualification specifications by following the links below:

The release of these qualifications coincide with OAL receiving formal approval to end-point assess the butcher apprentices taking the butcher apprenticeship standard. Which means therefore that we can offer an end-to-end service for employers, training providers and apprentices following the butcher apprenticeship standard.
