The Animal Care programme is a 2-year rolling course delivered at Level 1, which provides students with the opportunity to gain experience working with both large and small animals.  In addition it provides a practical backdrop in which students can build upon their employability skills and further develop their independence skills in preparation for the transition to adulthood. 

The course covers topics from identifying small animal parasites and undertaking health checks, to the principles of moving and handling animals, and work around communication skills.
