The new industry-leading Animal Resource Centre at Lackham is a truly inspiring environment to learn in. The animal resource centre and zoological garden provide learners with a diverse learning experience. The centre is also an approved OSCE exam centre, equipped to deliver Vet Nursing and higher education qualifications.
The Animal Resource Centre houses an extensive range of domestic and exotic animals ranging from reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds, fish, invertebrates and more. You will also find an array of animals living outdoors around the centre, including several species of birds, ferrets, chickens, lemurs and racoons. As part of your course, you will combine academic study with practical duties in the animal centre, which provides valuable experience when it comes to seeking employment.
Located near the Animal Resource Centre is the Blue Cross Cat Re-homing facility, with accommodation for a number of domestic cats seeking new homes. Students also have access to the grooming parlour, a facility which provides students with the opportunity to learn key skills in animal grooming as part of their course.
This course is aimed at learners who are ambitious about working with animals and who wish to progress onto further study or into employment within Animal Care or related industries. Offering you experience in animal care, providing a specialised approach for progression on the Level 3 qualification or into employment in the animal sector, you will also get experience of routine animal handling on a weekly basis, enabling you to develop skills in domestic and exotic animal care.
