Meet Level 2 Animal Care Apprentice Kyle

Meet Kyle, who is currently completing his Level 2 Animal Care apprenticeship at Charney Pet Care Centre. Kyle talks to us about his apprenticeship experience so far, what his job role entails, and his hopes for the future.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself, what you do and where you work?

My name is Kyle, I work at Charney Pet Care Centre which is a kennels and I help care for the cats and dogs here. I walk them, feed them and clean out their accommodations. I make sure they are happy and healthy and do everything that I can to ensure they have their needs met.

What inspired you to pursue a career working with animals?
 
I love animals! When I was younger I always wanted to work in a zoo and I was able to get an opportunity to work here which is perfect. I have animals of my own which made me realise how much I wanted to work with them every day. This is the first job I’ve ever had and I’m very lucky to have found my job here.

Why did you choose Haddon Training for your apprenticeship?

I heard it’s the best place to learn with animal care and get into the industry.

What is the best part of your apprenticeship?

I have enjoyed all of my apprenticeship so far but conducting my video evidence is what I’ve enjoyed the most so far. I like being able to showcase my skills and experience and how fun and interactive I can make them.

What things have you learnt so far on your apprenticeship that you will carry forward with you in your career (or personally)?

I have learnt a lot from my animal behaviour module, I now can recognise successfully animal behaviours and can see what behavioural responses to look for. I use this at work and on walks with my own dogs.

How does your employer support you?

Reuben is very supportive and is always there to help and aid me. He ensures that I am always progressing and to the working to the best of my ability whilst remaining understanding.

How does your Trainer Coach support you?

Laura helps me understand my modules, she is very supportive with my workbooks and ensures my understanding at the end of our sessions. She makes things more fun even when the subjects on paper could be boring. She makes things interactive and easy to learn.

Once you have completed your apprenticeship, what are your plans for the future?

I plan to stay at my work and in the animal care industry. I would like to progress to my level 3 and in the future I would like to possibly manage my own kennels or animal behaviour centre and help train dogs.
