During this Level 2 Animal Care Apprenticeship you will learn to develop and demonstrate competence in a range of areas, enabling you to progress onto the Level 3 course.
If you are passionate about animals and would love a job where you work with them every day, then a career in animal management is for you. As an apprentice you will work with a range of animals and learn more about their health, welfare, handling and supervision, as well as earning money at the same time.
Working with animals can be an extremely rewarding career, where no two days are the same and you can gain hands-on training with this Level 2 apprenticeship. To study this course you must have relevant employment within the animal care sector. If you need help to find an employer, please get in touch.
You can expect to spend one day every two weeks on campus for 12 - 18 months and the remaining days in the workplace with your employer. While on campus you will benefit from our extensive animal management collections which, depending on where you study, includes lemurs, meerkats, goats, ferrets, exotic animals, farm animals and aquatics.
This apprenticeship may start as and when required.
