Our Introduction to Animal Care takes place in our own animal unit, offering practical, hands-on experience with a range of different species.
It offers both practical and theoretical learning across a range of topics, including animal terminologies, animal behaviours, and how to create the right environments for the animals in your care.
You'll also develop some additional core skills that will support your learning, like numeracy and communication.
