Level 3 Advanced Technical Diploma in Animal Management
“I knew I wanted to work with animals and I chose to study at Reaseheath because it has such a good reputation in that sector.
“My big discovery was that I like to care for animals, particularly domestic pets. I enjoy interacting with them and their owners.
During my course I carried out health checks of the animals in Reaseheath’s collection, so Ilearned how to handle a wide range, from companions to exotics, and I also studied customer care.
“Apart from the animals, Reaseheath has a great social life. And the lecturers and tutors really care how you’re doing and will always put themselves out. I feel really prepared and excited for the next stage of my life.”
