Are you comfortable around animals and more importantly, do you enjoy being around them? Could you imagine yourself supporting them and their owners through upsetting and stressful situations? If you’re a real animal lover and you have an interest in learning about domestic, exotic and farm animals through a mixture of classroom and practical work, then one of our Animal Care courses is for you.
We have strong links with local farms, zoos and other animal establishments such as the RSPCA so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to visit and work directly with a variety of animals. There’ll also be the option to do short work placements with employers so you can really get stuck in and get all the experience you’ll need to work in the industry.
An average day could include anything from dog grooming and handling birds of prey to dealing with exotic snakes. We promise a day in our Animal Care area is never boring!
Our Animal Care facilities really make us stand out in the region as one of the top providers. We’ve got dog grooming salons, veterinary suites, kennels and our links with employers mean you get to learn and work in real facilities, meaning when you come to look for jobs in this competitive industry you’ll already be a step ahead the rest.
The majority of our students go onto careers working at zoos, kennels, or onto veterinary courses at University. Whatever your interest in animals, we’ve got a course for you.
