We also offer a range of dog grooming courses, enabling you to work in parlours and dog salons.

Success Story

Adam Button

Extended Diploma in Animal Management

Adam studies at the College of West Anglia in Cambridge, where he is pursuing his knowledge of animal care and management.

“I have always had an interest in animals, especially reptiles, so I decided to come to CWA because of the animal care unit and the fact it was a good college. The thing I most enjoy most about coming to college is the interaction and handling that we get to do with the animals and that we can practice the methods that we have learnt.”

Adam has secured a place at university to study zoology and also won the Extended Diploma in Animal Management student of the year 2011/12.
