The College’s Animal Management Unit houses one of the most diverse selections of species in the country, offering students the chance to develop a wide range of skills.
With increasing public awareness of animal welfare issues, the need for well-trained and qualified staff within the diverse animal care industry has never been greater and there are fantastic opportunities for being self-employed, for the entrepreneurs among you.
Within the commercial dog grooming parlour, pampered pooches are treated to a full make-over by students who develop their grooming skills, and gain first-hand experience in customer care and business practice.
Students are required to provide a blue kennel coat or overalls and a white lab coat, which are available from the online College shop. Steel toe-capped footwear and training equipment is also required.
