National Pet College given go-head for new apprenticeship

National Pet College’s (NPC’s) Level 3 Animal Welfare Manager apprenticeship has been officially approved for development by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IFATE).

Over the next few months employers and providers will be asked to comment on the knowledge, skills, and behaviours that should be included in the apprenticeship standard to ensure that the programme and assessment is fit for purpose.

NPC Education Manager, Vicky Skinner, said: “We are thrilled that this new Level 3 apprenticeship has been approved for development. We presented the case for development to the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education route panel in mid-December and received the approval letter just before Christmas.

“We will now be gathering feedback from employers and providers on the key duties of management or supervisory roles within the pet sector to ensure that this new apprenticeship is as valuable as possible.”
