There are no specific prior achievements required to take this qualification, but a Level 1 or another Level 2 qualification in Animal Care or other Land-based related subjects could be an advantage. The qualification is suitable for school leavers or adults looking for a change in career.
This qualification is a centre-based qualification designed to be taken in a College-based environment.
It is designed to contribute towards the knowledge and understanding for the Work-based Qualifications in Animal Care while containing additional skills and knowledge which go beyond the scope of the National Occupational Standards. It provides a valuable alternative for those candidates who do not have access to the work-based qualifications.
