This highly practical course is an ideal starting point for those students with few formal qualifications. Covering the basics of handling, feeding and the setting up of accommodation for a wide range of species, this course will enable you to learn how to work safely, care for and maintain animal accommodation in our custom-built animal management unit.

You will learn:

• Safe and effective work practices in land-based industries
• Develop performance in land-based industries
• Assist with maintaining the health and wellbeing of animals
• Animals in the wild and in society
• Assist with the handling and restraint of animals
• Assist with the preparation and maintenance of animal accommodation
• Assist with the feeding and watering of animals
• Functional skills/GCSE - English and maths

Short multiple choice examinations, plus a portfolio of evidence that will be marked by an external examiner.

Successful students can further enhance their skills by enrolling onto the Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care or, should they wish to, progress into an Apprenticeship.

In addition to standard College equipment, students will need steel toe-capped boots, waterproof clothing, black cargo trousers and a Hadlow animal management jacket and t-shirt.
