Learn how to take care of a wide variety of animals in different professional settings. Get practical work experience while studying. If you love animals and want to make a career out of it, our animal care programmes are for you.
This programme will give you an entry-level animal care qualification. It will also give you a taste of the wider range of animal-related qualifications available and allow you to get a feel for tertiary study before attempting higher-level qualifications. It's also a great first step if you want to enter an animal-related profession such as an animal care attendant, pet shop work or kennel and cattery animal carer.
There are no programmes available for your selection. Please try selecting another campus location.
Use the knowledge and skills you already have to fast-track your qualification with minimum cost. Workplace-learning, volunteering, professional development, other provider qualifications and online courses or units can be recognised as prior learning and put towards your future diploma or degree.
