Aquaculture Apprenticeships

Aquaculture Apprenticeships

Apprenticeships provide practical, ‘on-the-job’ training and skills development for aquaculture staff at all levels, leading to nationally recognised qualifications. They are relevant to a range of different types of aquaculture, including both fish and shellfish farming.

  • Aquaculture Apprenticeship Overview
  • Modern Apprenticeship in Aquaculture (SCQF Level 5) - for new and less-experienced staff.
  • Modern Apprenticeship in Aquaculture (SCQF Level 7) - for more experienced staff.
  • Technical Apprenticeship in Aquaculture Management (SCQF Level 9) - for senior staff and managers.

While it is normal to progress through the levels, you may be able to enter directly at a higher level if you have relevant experience and/or previous qualifications.

Most training and assessments are workplace-based, but some training at the Shetland UHI Scalloway Campus (or another training centre) may also be required. The Technical Apprenticeship (level 9) makes extensive use of self-study via online distance-learning.
