The UK’s weirdest apprenticeships

There’s an apprenticeship out there for everyone, Check out the examples bellow for some of the more unusual apprenticeships on offer

If you’re thinking university isn’t for you, a great way to further your career is by applying for an apprenticeship to get earning straight away while you train and learn your chosen profession.

From the people I have spoken to, a lot of seem to think that apprenticeships are mostly just for learning a trade like plumbing or carpentry, but now in 2018 that really isn’t the case, you can now do an apprenticeship at almost any age in any field, there’s an apprenticeship out there for everyone, Check out the examples bellow for some of the more unusual apprenticeships on offer…

 

 

Fish Husbandry
Fish husbandry might be a very old and traditional skill, and not one that many of people would immediately consider, but for some it’s a job that’s been part of their families for years. If you prefer working with fish over humans then this could be a great one for you!

Taxidermist
If you have a love of animal science and history taxidermy might be an appealing idea, Taxidermists often work for museums and even create pieces for block buster movie sets…

Sandwich Artist
If you love sandwiches then a canvas of bread could be the perfect medium for you to express your creativity, If you fancy creating the perfect “meatball marinara footlong” then you could take a bite out of an apprenticeship in sandwichery, if that’s even a word… I

Mortician
It’s not just about dealing with the deceased, you’ll need to work with and support families too, at what is a very difficult time. It involves helping to organise funerals so apprentices need great customer service and a lot of empathy.

Ghost Hunter Apprentice
This is one of my favorites! Gloucester’s resident ghost hunter was on the search, for an apprentice, if you’re a fan of Casper the Friendly Ghost, and think scaring the hell out of tourists on ghost walks sounds like a great deal of fun then this really could have been a perfect career for you!

Although you may not have the stomach to become a mortician, or want to make sandwiches for ever, I think these examples show that there really is an apprenticeship for everyone. If none of the above floats your boat then maybe an apprenticeship in I.T., business or digital marketing could be the perfect career for you. Check out our website and get in touch. Apprenticeships really can be an amazing way to get the skills, experience and career you want.
