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

The BSc (Hons) Level 6 Top-up in Zoological Management and Conservation aims to develop advanced practitioners in the field of animal collection management for conservation. A strong focus is given to the role collections play in conservation activities e.g. conservation translocations and conservation communications.

Utilising industry specialists and trips to field sites and collections, you will learn to critically evaluate a variety of conservation projects and display advanced knowledge of the role of ex situ animal collection staff and conservation scientists. The course also covers the role communication plays in zoological collections as both a tool for engaging visitors and spreading conservation messages. You will be given the opportunity to undertake an independent research project supporting key skill development in the areas of critical analyses and data manipulation. The course offers a natural progression on from our FdSc Zoological Management but also offers a specialised route for external students, who, after completing an FdSc elsewhere, have a particular interest in the conservation role of animal collections.
