Who would this apprenticeship suit

This qualification is suited to a person whom wishes to work within a veterinary nurse assistant, dog Boarding and rescue, cattery, small petting farm or other animal care   environment and will form part of the Apprenticeship framework for Animal care.

It is a 100% work based, approximately 12-month training program, competence-qualification with Heavenlyz bringing the mentor, tutor and assessor to you in your workplace, with no need to go on day release at a college (preferential for young people who do not thrive in a class room environment).

The apprenticeship qualification will reflect the skills and knowledge needed to do the job effectively within an animal care environment.

You will need to have a strong love for animals and have a friendly and enthusiastic nature to be able to deliver natural friendly customer care. The role requires you to be on your feet all day and at times is very labour intensive with lots of manual handling. You may be required to work outdoors and in adverse weather conditions, so a love for the outdoors is desirable especially if working on a small petting farm, boarding kennels, cattery or other rescue facility. The hours may require you to work on Bank Holidays including Christmas day and you must be prepared to enjoy cleaning, as where there are animals and human visitors there is a lot of mess to clean up!
