animal care banner

Give your passion for the great outdoors and all creatures great and small, the tools to grow. At our rural Usk campus you’ll not only gain the skills and qualifications you need but that important experience so many employers search for. Get your hands dirty. Get qualified. Get on the path to your dream career.

Animal Care & Management

Whilst this industry is vast, we give you the skills to hone your passion and open the doors to your dream career working with large and small animals. From veterinary surgeries to grooming salons. From animal feed companies to zoos. If you love animals, study a course in animal care and management with us today.

Agriculture

A vital and dynamic industry, agriculture is the backbone of the country. Your practical course takes you out of the classroom and into real working environments, meaning your experience grows each day. Whether you want to work in farm & land management, livestock production operations, small enterprise management or farm contracting, an agriculture course provides the perfect platform to grow.

Equine

The study of equine and horse management is so much more than what it appears on the surface. It’s a true appreciation of the species and what you need to do to care for, protect and manage them. From yard management, competitive riding, animal rescue or equine stud work, this is your chance to grab the reins and bag a career working with horses.

Countryside Management

We only get one planet and so the protection and management of our countryside is key to its longevity. Potential career options include working for the Woodland Trust, the Forestry Commission, small enterprise management or as a land-based contractor. If you love the great outdoors, you’ll love countryside management.
