Development

 

Animal Care and Welfare Assistant Trailblazer Standard

The industry has developed this practical standard to challenge apprentices and ensure competent staff are trained for the Animal Care industry. Specific details for testing the apprentices will be developed as part of the assessment standard.

The standard specifies the knowledge, skills and behaviours which are required by a competent Animal Care and Welfare Assistant at the end of their apprenticeship, with specific options for Animal Interaction & Handling, Rehoming, Movement and Transportation, Operation/Reception, Breeding, Zoos, Aquaria & Exotics, Working Dog Handler and Wildlife Rehabilitation. Please note the knowledge required is aimed at giving the apprentice an overall picture of the industry, so the skills they are learning can be put into context.
