Agriculture, environment and animal care
This fertile sector for apprenticeships can be separated into three major categories:
- land management and production
- animal health and welfare
- environmental industries
As you can imagine, there are a wide variety of jobs in the sector. While many apprentices find their ideal job in the farming and skilled agricultural and environmental areas, there are also plenty of diverse, practical, and animal-centric options out there too.
You will also find creative occupations here, like forestry, and caring jobs. For example, working as an apprentice veterinary nurse.
- Agriculture, environment and animal care includes:
- Land-based service engineering technician
- Sports turf operative
- Horticulture and Landscape Operative

Increase your talent pool
There are loads of benefits to hiring apprentices. Apprenticeships help us to develop knowledge and skills within the organisation, improve employee motivation, provide development opportunities, feed into succession planning – and of course, increase our talent pool!
Tailor your apprentice’s training
Over the past two years, we’ve conducted a great deal of research, using Find apprenticeship training and the Institute for Apprenticeship website. To get started, we engage with training providers and meet with potential apprentices and line managers to ensure a shared understanding, making sure the training is right for the individual, role and organisation.
Find the right apprentice
To find an apprentice, we recruit internally, put out communications, engage with line managers for recommendations and refer to external sources. We advertise with the training provider, using Recruit an apprentice on the government website.
