What the course entails
This course is for those who are passionate about pets, serious about changing career or wanting to start a new business. Our award-winning tutors will guide you and build your knowledge, skills and confidence throughout your course.
This is a very intensive programme to deliver the best commercial results, so you must be commercially focused and determined to succeed. You are required to book a minimum of one month in advance to give you sufficient time to access relevant material before you start the course.
During the course you will sit a series of practical and theory assessments as part of your City & Guilds modules that count to your qualification. Your work will also be photographed and will be included in your portfolio of work.
You will spend four weeks Monday - Friday 9am - 6pm in house with us covering the practical work. However, before, during and after your course you have access to our online learning platform to cover the theory knowledge.
The online learning is mandatory, as this time is logged and is essential in you achieving your overall City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma.
What you'll need to buy
We require students to buy their own scissors so that they can get used to their own equipment. You do not need to buy these before you join us, we carry a small range or we can recommend where to purchase them. You use your scissors every day so invest in them!
All other equipment we will provide during your course.
