General Information

What Is Involved In Studying This Course?

To gain an award, certificate or diploma in Work-based Animal Care, you need to show you've got a particular set of skills. You usually work with your training provider to review your current skills and find the best way to gain new ones - perhaps by trying new things at work, or by studying.

These qualifications are assessed at work. For each unit your assessor watches and asks questions as you perform a task, or looks at a portfolio of work that you've built as formal evidence of your learning. Then they confirm you've got the skills to do the job well.

Which level is right for me?

Level 1

Level 2
You have some knowledge and basic skills in the industry. You want to prove your competence in your role, perhaps to help you move from a junior to senior position. You may also be looking for a qualification to prepare you for progression to the Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Animal Care.

Level 3
