Sneak Peak

 

Continually growing your understanding and skills in caring for animals.

This course was developed for anyone who owns animals or works with animals; from pet owners and farm workers, to zoo keepers and staff in animal shelters. The course offers lots of options for practical tasks where you can focus your study on the type of animal that most concerns you, whether a pet dog, farm livestock, rescued wildlife, zoo animals or anything else.

These studies can set you on a pathway to continually growing your understanding and skills in caring for animals. This may be a course to underpin further studies; or it may be a one off course of study to underpin experience and informal learning that extends for years beyond these initial studies.
