Animal Care

This brand new programme will be delivered in conjunction with our partner Basics Plus at Betton Farm

Our Animal Care courses are available at Level/s 1

Our Animal Care courses are very hands on, and will give you the chance to get up close and personal with a wide variety of animals. You will learn how to care for them in a variety of ways; from animal health, nursing, welfare, feeding and accommodation.

The practical aspects of this programme will be delivered at our industry partner’s, Basics Plus, facilities at Betton Farm in Scarborough one day each week. You will also hear from guest speakers from across the industry and specialist areas such as exotics specialists and veterinary professionals who will share their wealth of experience and knowledge with you.
