Obtain the practical and technical skills needed for a rewarding career in the animal industry.
The animal care industry is worth over £1 billion to the UK economy, and boasts over 13,000 businesses - from pet shops and sanctuaries, to zoos and wildlife parks. Choose animal management and you will have the opportunity to work directly with animals at our brand new animal management centre in Banbury.
Studying and learning in a hands-on environment, you will work directly with fish, insects, small animals such as rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets, and reptiles such as snakes and small lizards.
The programmes will equip students with the practical and technical skills needed for rewarding careers in the animal industry. Students will be able to undertake work experience placements at local animal care and management organisations.
You will learn about animal welfare and health, principles of behaviour, feeding and care and basic animal biology. If you are a self-confessed 'animal person', a career in animal management might be perfect for you. Possible careers include:
Our state-of-the-art animal management centre will help you develop skills and knowledge in a realistic and professional environment. Opening in September 2019, the new centre will house fantastic facilities and resources for learners.
A career pathway is a plan, with clear, practical steps you can take to achieve the career of your dreams. This will help equip you with the skills, attributes and knowledge that future employers want, giving you a greater chance of success.
Our career pathway maps will show you the best routes through college, higher education and employment and into the most popular industry sectors.
An ideal qualification for those intending to progress to employment in animal care and management and associated industries."
