“I really enjoyed my studies on the Level 3 Animal Management course. The tutors were extremely supportive, and there were regular trips and industry speakers. I want to work in veterinary practice, and I’m excited about my future in the industry thanks to the skills I’ve developed.”Suzanne Stewart
