Aubrey Allen, award winning family business in Coventry, will be the first catering butcher in the country to put their Apprentice through the new Trailblazer Apprenticeship final assessment.
Joe Allen, who started with Aubrey Allen in March 2015 as an Apprentice has developed into a skilled butcher in the processing sector. Joe has been fortunate enough to be coached by European Champion Butcher Michael Perkins in the state of the art Academy that Aubrey Allen have created.
Michael said “We are delighted for Joe and for him to be the pioneer in this is really exciting. We have developed the training centre to train our Apprentices and other people as well – including chefs – to try to fill the skills gap in the food service sector. When Joe started with us he had no experience of butchery and now, although quietly so, is confident enough to help in training other butchers and chefs and it has been great to see his development “
Joe has also been supported and trained from the start through the Crosby Management Training company who specialise in signing up apprentices for industry and are as passionate as Aubrey Allen about getting young people into the industry.
The final assessment will take place at Aubrey’s Academy in Coventry on 2nd November 2017.
