Summary

This one-year programme of study is aimed at providing learners with the underpinning knowledge and skills that are required to work in the animal industry, with the ability to retake GCSE Maths alongside.

The BTEC units required to achieve the Level 3, 90-credit Diploma BTEC include: animal biology, animal health and husbandry, work-related experience, and breed development and welfare, as well as animal feeding and accommodation.

What do I need to join?

You need to have five GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above, including English Language, Maths and Double Science.

How will I know how I am doing?

Learners will discuss their own SMART targets with their personal tutor and these will then be specifically designed to enable learners to progress onto a top-up Level 3 course. In order to review progress, learners will meet regularly with their personal tutor, and feedback on assessments will be provided by teaching staff.

Maths & English

As part of the ethos of upskilling our learners, opportunities to improve their maths and English will be identified in lessons and throughout the course.

Employability

Lessons are related to industry practice in order to enhance employability opportunities and learners will study an industry-related additional qualification as part of the study programme.

Work Experience

As part of your overall programme of study, learners will be required to undertake a period of work placement related to the field of employment they wish to enter.

Our Work Placement Team will assist learners in gaining a placement and ensure that you are on track to achieve, whilst liaising with your course tutors to ensure that the opportunity to practice necessary employability skills is available at college.

 

What can I do next?

Learners who successfully complete Year 1 will be eligible to progress onto the Level 3 Diploma (two A-level equivalent) in Year 2.

Alternatively, learners may be able to gain an apprenticeship in a related field, or progress into the industry.

Upon completion of Year 2, progression would also include enrolment in higher education, such as the HNC/HND in Animal Welfare, HNC/HND in Conservation or the FdSc in Zoological Management through the University of Gloucestershire.

What are my career options?

Learners can find employment in kennels, catteries, pet stores, wildlife parks, dog grooming salons and zoological institutions. We would advise all learners to try and secure additional voluntary work in one of these areas alongside their work placement, as this could provide enhanced opportunities for employment upon course completion.
