Unconditional Places to Full-Time Applicants

Due to the uncertainty around how long the Covid-19 outbreak will last, it has been agreed for the immediate future that we will be offering unconditional places to full-time (not University Level) applicants who apply to SGS College.

Once you apply for your course, you will receive a communication offering you a place.

You just need to accept the offer, if you wish to.

We will then be in touch to discuss the offer once the Covid-19 risk reduces.

Course
information

Summary

This course is designed for young people who have an interest in working with animals and who wish to progress onto Level 2 study in this field. Learners will undertake animal handling duties at our SGS Filton Campus and undertake work experience as a core component of the programme.

This course covers basic units of study such as animal health, welfare and behaviour, biology and ecology.

How will I know how I am doing?

Learners will meet with their personal tutor in order to review progress and agree on SMART targets so that progress can be measured and learners challenged to achieve their best.

What do I need to join?

You will need two GCSEs at grade 2 (E) in English and Maths.

Maths & English

A key requirement for obtaining many jobs is to achieve a good standard of English and maths. Therefore learners that do not yet have a GCSE grade C in either subject will be enrolled on either GCSE or functional skills programmes alongside their course.

Employability

We will be delivering a variety of tasks and projects to prepare learners for progression into further study or employment.

Work Experience

core component of the programme.

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete the qualification, and all other elements of their study programme, may progress onto Level 2 in Countryside and Environment.
