Level 2 Stockperson Apprenticeship Standard
The key role for a stockperson is to raise 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. Being a stockperson requires compassion, self-motivation and the ability to work both in a team and independently.
You will be provided with a solid foundation in a broad range of skills required to work competently within the livestock industry. You will learn and develop practical skills and knowledge from your workplace which can then be built upon at College to ensure a well-rounded understanding of caring for livestock.
College attendance is required on a fortnightly day-release basis.
