This course will prepare the learner for appropriate employment in this area and is suitable for those who have decided that they clearly wish to enter a particular specialist area of work. It is broadly equivalent to three GCE A Levels.
Some learners may wish to gain the qualification in order to enter a specialist area of employment or to progress to a higher education foundation degree, HND or other professional development programme, while others may want to extend the specialist nature of the subjects they have studied already.
You will receive instruction, guidance and encouragement to practise and develop the skills necessary to achieve the award. The course covers a wide range of subjects including:
5 GCSEs Level 4 and above Grade A*- C (to include English, Maths and preferably a Science) or a BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care (Merit).
All students must provide evidence of valid tetanus immunisation.
The course is continuously assessed through assignments, projects and case studies.
Learners will develop a responsible and co-operative approach to working on their own and in groups. The course uses practical activities, presentations and involvement with local businesses wherever possible.
This course is a recognised route into Higher Education. Students may progress to a Higher National Diploma or Degree course.
Employment opportunities include animal sector (kennels, catteries, pet shops, animal welfare organisations, animal collections and so on) at supervisory or managerial levels based on ability and experience.
