Testimonials

"The College of Animal Welfare has been very helpful in assisting in securing different veterinary practices for each of the placement blocks. However if you wish to stay at the same placement this can also be arranged. Personally, I wanted to see as many practices as possible so I could see the diversity of veterinary medicine and decide which aspects I preferred and if I wanted to work in referral or first opinion."

The College of Animal Welfare was established in 1989 by one of the leading animal welfare charities, Wood Green Animal Shelters in Cambridgeshire. The vision was to use education to help tackle animal welfare issues and the problem of unwanted and abandoned animals.

In 1996, the College, known at the time as the Wood Green College of Animal Welfare, became an independently managed, not-for-profit, organisation in its own right and changed its name to The College of Animal Welfare.

Today, the College has centres in Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Yorkshire and Scotland and specialises in training in the land-based sector. We strongly believe that education and training is the key to raising standards of animal welfare. To this end, we strive to create new and accessible opportunities for learning, and encourage employers and those working with animals to undertake appropriate levels of training and continue with lifelong learning and education.
