Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

This course is aimed at providing learners with the underpinning knowledge and skills that are required to work in the animal industry, or a sound base from which to progress onto Year 2 of a Level 3 study programme, as well as providing an A-level-equivalent qualification.

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.

This Level 3 course is based at our Filton campus, located in South Gloucestershire which is easily accessible from the city of Bristol by train (Bristol Parkway / Bristol Abbey Wood) and bus.

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.

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.

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

Learners will undertake a work placement of 30 hours (minimum) that needs to be industry related and related to their long-term career goals.

What can I do next?

Learners will be challenged to progress onto the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Animal Management after successful completion of this course. Progression could also be onto an HNC/HND in Animal Welfare, HNC/HND in Conservation or 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.
