IF YOU’RE looking for an exciting career as animal welfare worker, conservationist, dog handler, veterinary nurse, or zookeeper, Wirral Met College can help you prepare!
There are still places left on courses in animal care – from entry/ foundation level, level one and level two in animal care, BTEC national in animal management at level three and a higher education (HNC/D) in Animal Management.
Wirral Met College’s Twelve Quays Campus is home to a number of animals, including dwarf rabbits, guinea pigs, dwarf and Syrian hamsters, mice, budgies, terrapins, snakes, a python, lizards, geckos, a horned frog, fire-bellied toads, stick insects and more.
Students work in newly-refurbished classrooms and develop their practical skills working with a range of animals.
Their students are offered good work placements at a range of employers across the Wirral so they are prepared for the world of work.
Working with pets such as cats, dogs or horses is one example of a placement opportunity.
They also do work in the local community working in parks and the countryside generally.
Sophie Larkin is one of Wirral Met’s students.
Sophie volunteers as dog groomer in Debonair Dogs, in Moreton.
She achieved a distinction at BTEC level two animal care and has progressed onto BTEC level three Extended Diploma in Animal Management.
