INDUCTION WEEK 

Induction Week starts on Monday 3rd September at 9am. Please use the college buses to travel in for your first day. A copy of your timetable can be downloaded here.

In order to successfully enrol, please ensure you bring:

  • A form of photo ID
  • National Insurance number
  • Exam results slip
  • Campus fee of £70
  • If you’re over 19, you will also need to bring a copy of your advanced learner loan information.

Please note, you must meet the entry requirements for the programme you have been accepted onto in order to enrol successfully. If you do not meet requirements, your enrolment on the programme will be at the discretion of the programme leader.

As well as working in the college’s animal management unit you will also get the opportunity to go on work placements. Previous students have gone on placements at local wildlife centres, vets, pet shops and kennels. This is a great opportunity to put what you have learnt into practice. To progress on to the level 3 course, you will be expected to complete a minimum of 35 hours of external work experience in a suitable placement.

During the course you will get the opportunity to go on a range of visits which are held at the end of each teaching block. You will get plenty of notice of these visits and trips so that you can save for them, although we try and keep them as cheap as possible.

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.

For your course, you will need:

Folder with dividers to organise your work and assignments

  • Stationery including notepad for use in class, pens and pencils
  • USB pen drive (for saving your work)
  • College-branded blue kennel coat
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) – including steel toe capped footwear (boots, shoes, or wellies)
  • Waterproof outdoor clothing and footwear (for work experience)
