Absolute work with GBGB to deliver Flagship Apprenticeship Scheme for Greyhound Racing


The Greyhound Board of Great Britain (GBGB), the governing board for licensed greyhound racing in the UK, has launched an apprenticeship programme in partnership with Absolute for young people entering the industry.

GBGB’s Animal Care and Welfare Assistant Apprenticeship will give the apprentices hands-on training in delivering world-class care to racing greyhounds, eventually providing a qualification in husbandry and greyhound welfare. Developed in partnership with a number of prominent animal organisations, including the RSPCA, Dogs Trust and Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, it is the first of its kind launched under the government’s Trailblazer system.

Throughout the Apprenticeship (minimum of 12 months), the trainees will undertake off-the-job training and complete modules in animal care and welfare, biology, behaviour and handling. Added to this, they will also have the chance to attend guest lectures with specialists in the field, including an animal behaviorist from the Dogs Trust.
