Belfast Met students Kirsty Watson from Carryduff (left) and Kat Deuchars from Ballygowan (right) have recently been awarded their Level 3 Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement. The students gained much of their experience at John Dory’s Award Winning Fish and Chip shops and now they will be able to assess and support new apprentices in the industry. Along with the students are Belfast Met staff members Andrea Cooper and Ben Polley. 

The fish frying apprenticeships recognise the skill of employees whilst adding a valuable qualification framework to this thriving local industry. Belfast Met tutor Ben Polley, said the college was ‘thrilled’ to be delivering the scheme along with the local fish and chip business and the industry training body.

As well as fish frying and traditional subjects, Belfast Met’s Apprenticeship Programme provides training in a range of other areas such as accountancy, IT, or civil engineering. For more information visit
