The animal care industry covers a wide range of areas including: animal care and welfare, zoos/wildlife establishments, dog grooming, pet care and retail, animal welfare enforcement, animal training, dog/animal wardens and animals in education and entertainment. This qualification provides a practical entry and progression route that will encourage your employee to develop their skills and knowledge in areas of interest to them. The animal care industry is important for the land-based and environmental sector in England but many establishments within the industry have hard-to-fill vacancies. The aim of the qualification is to recruit new employees or up-skill existing employees in the industry to ensure that they attain the skills to be competent in their job.
Bury College apprenticeships are work based training programmes which are carried out in the workplace. 20% of your apprentice’s time will be dedicated to off the job training which equates to one and a half hours a day or one full day a week. Off the job activities can include:
Functional Skills are a vital part of an apprenticeship. Functional Skills provides the essential knowledge, skills and understanding needed to operate confidently, effectively and independently. These are available at Level 1 and Level 2 and the level your employee will work towards will depend on the previous qualifications they have achieved, the results of an assessment prior to their apprenticeship and the requirements of the apprenticeship they are completing.
If your employee has not already achieved Level 2 English and maths they must study for and take the tests for Level 2 English and maths and achieve Level 1 English and maths for the Level 2 Apprenticeship.
As well as college attendance, a Bury College assessor will visit your employee on a regular basis and support them with developing their electronic portfolio which is used as evidence for their end point assessment. During these meetings observations, question and answer sessions and reviews will take place.
