Alex Phillips, Level 3 Animal Management
We get to study in a zoo - it's unbelievable! The course is a
mix of practical and theory work which is great as you get to
practice what you learn. The assessments, such as animal health
checks, are practical too, which is great for testing our
My confidence has grown massively since working at the zoo. I
really enjoy giving talks about the animals to the public and
raising awareness about endangered species.
We went on a class trip to Africa this year which was just the
most amazing two weeks of my life. We learnt a lot about the
different cultures and saw so many species of animals there.
Alex hopes to progress to the HND in Animal Management and then
work in a zoo or animal rehabilitation centre.
