New Apprenticeship Standards Launched

New Animal Care and Equine Grooms Standards Launched

The Institute for Apprenticeships has announced that the Animal Care Level 2 Apprenticeship Standard and the new Senior Groom Level 3 Apprenticeship Standards are now live and ready for us to deliver - this is great news!

These standards have been developed by a group of business employers, outlining the knowledge, skills, and behaviours that reflect the latest industry practices. These have replaced the existing Frameworks and will quickly become nationally recognised as leading sector qualifications.

Individuals will need to achieve the core skills and knowledge, behaviours as well as choosing specialised pathways to complete their training.

What is Animal Care and Welfare Assistant Level 2?

Animal Care and Welfare Assistants look after the routine day to day husbandry and care of domestic and/or wild animals under guidance in a variety of different settings. The work is carried out individually or as part of a team in places such as kennels and catteries, laboratories, animal welfare centres, farm parks, rehabilitation centres, retail outlets and in the transportation of animals. Explore it all here.

They will possess all the necessary skills to lead by example and will have the knowledge required to implement effective systems relating to the running of the yard.
