“Not only do I get to work with a massive variety of animals (Spring Lane has over 100 different species) but I also love working with the staff members and getting to teach younger students.

As I share my knowledge I get to help students expand their knowledge as well as improve my skillset for the future.”

Animal Management

“I initially studied the Extended Diploma in Animal Management at Level 3 straight after school and now I’m lucky enough to be an animal care ssistant at the College.

I love that I am working towards my future with the opportunities that have been provided to me by the college and that this will continue through Higher Education.”

Animal Management

What I love about College is that I’m allowed to explore what I’m interested in but I also have the dedicated support I need from tutors and other students.

The College environment is so welcoming and I’m really enjoying all the different aspects.”
