Top Careers Opportunities
Abigail Murray • Level 3 Animal Management
Animal Care at The Manchester College is really enjoyable. You get to learn lots of theory on topics such as biology, which supports all the practical work we do caring for the animals. There were other courses closer to where I live, but I chose this one because of its study modules. I originally wanted to work with dogs in particular, but there is such a large mix of animals. I’m loving working with the racoons.”
