Course Overview

Take the steps into a fulfilling and exciting career within animal management. This course has a combination of both theory and practical sessions based at our specialist eco-friendly animal care centre, which is fully equipped with everything you need to be able to study both effectively and successfully. The course will develop your knowledge in animal health and disease, biology, physiology, and feeding and handling.
You will explore the promotion of animal health and nutrition to learn how different animals require different kinds of care. There will also be an opportunity to observe the differing animal behaviours and habits. You will investigate, research and identify a project and then present your findings, reflect and improve your analytical and presentations skills.
On site, there is a range of animals which are housed in different enclosures consisting of an aviary, reptile house, aquarium, mammal units and a small livestock area. Through practical interactions with these animals, you will have the opportunity to further develop your knowledge in animal behaviour patterns and the way animals communicate. You will learn about welfare and husbandry, regulations, and animal accommodation. You will also learn about animal breeding and genetics.
The course presents opportunities for a range of trips to zoos, sanctuaries and wildlife centres and you will be encouraged to take part in a work placement in order to support your learning within college. Work placements help to develop communication and employability skills by providing opportunities for you to apply knowledge to practice, receive feedback, and reflect on your own experience.
