Overview

This one year programme is aimed at those who wish to work with animals in a role which supports management and is equivalent to studying just under two a-levels.

Entrants will normally have some experience of working with companion animals. The programme develops both technical knowledge and practical skills through lectures, practicals, demonstrations, vistis and one day per week at work placement. Students will be assessed through coursework, exams, and practical assessments.

The BTEC Foundation Diploma in Animal Management is excellent preparation for employment in animal collections, pet shops, rescue centres, and small charities. There is also the opportunity for students to progress onto the second year of the Extended Diploma in Animal Management with Science.
