Find a Training Provider for the Abattoir Worker Apprenticeship or WATOK

Thinking of taking on an abattoir apprentice or looking for a WATOK training provider? You’ve come to the right place.

The apprenticeship training providers listed here have all been approved to deliver training connected with the abattoir worker apprenticeship. This can be training to support the whole apprenticeship, training specifically for WATOK (Welfare of Animals at Time of Killing) or both. WATOK is  a compulsory qualification for abattoir workers and is also part of the abattoir worker apprenticeship.

Some training providers offer abattoir apprenticeship or WATOK training on a regional basis, whilst others can offer training for abattoir workers nationwide. They will be happy to discuss your individual training needs and explain the detail of the programmes they offer.
