FE News | New course in animal care for Doncaster students

New Animal Care qualifications are being introduced at Communication Specialist College Doncaster from 2024.

The courses will see students at the specialist further education (FE) college learn a new range of skills in caring for animals, including small mammals and reptiles.

Laurent Berges, director of the college said:

“We are extremely pleased to introduce this new career path to the college.

“We know that many of our students and potential students want to learn about animal care to give them the skills they need to work in places like Yorkshire Wildlife Park, vet surgeries and specialist pet stores.

“The creation of a new professional space means we have recruited new staff including teachers and technicians and once the team starts on January 24 we will be introducing an animal care

department which will be responsible for transporting a number of small animals to the college.

“The Level 2 course is ideal for students who want to pursue a career in animal care or want to progress to an apprenticeship in this field, but we are also introducing a Level 1 program and non-accredited modules to develop life skills. “

The curriculum is developed in conjunction with experts in animal care to ensure that students learn the skills and attitudes required to gain employment in this field.

“This is one of the first steps in the development of our new curriculum and students studying at the Communication Specialist College will see a range of exciting new courses and opportunities available over the coming year,” added Laurent.
