Introduction to Land Based Studies Diploma Level 1

This highly practical course is an ideal starting point for those students with few formal qualifications. Covering the basics of handling, feeding and the setting up of accommodation for a wide range of species, this course will enable you to learn how to work safely, care for and maintain animal accommodation in our custom-built animal management unit.

You will learn animal handling, land-based skills, how to work in a team, and personal & social development, and functional skills/GCSE in English and Maths.

How will I be assessed?

Practical assessments and written assignments are set continually throughout the course.

What may it lead to?

Students can progress on to Level 2 courses in Animal and Land-Based studies, or into an Apprenticeship.
