Animal Management (BTEC)

Crazy about animals? Then take a walk on the wild side at Kingsmead Sixth Form where we work in collaboration with the Exotic Zoo Telford

If you have a connection with animals or enjoy biological sciences, our Animal Management course is the place for you!

You’ll be based in our Animal Management Centre at Kingsmead (click below to see a 360 degree photo) and in connection with Exotic Zoo Telford you will have the opportunity to work with over “70 of the world’s most amazing animals” including tapir, meerkats, lemurs, otters, birds of prey, reptiles, fish, amphibians and a range of domestic animals.

Your classroom lectures will come to life as you carry out practical sessions with the animals in our collection. You will receive expert teaching and support from our tutors and zoo keepers who teach weekly at Kingsmead. All staff have a wealth of knowledge, industry experience and contacts to help you be successful in the animal world! You will even have work experience opportunities as part of your course and begin to forge links within the animal industry.
