Diploma in Care of the Senior Pets - Level 3

Just as humans, animals tend to grow old and require special attention as well. As they cannot verbally express their discomfort or need, it is the responsibility of pet owners or professionals in the animal industry to understand their requirements and to ease things during their old age. Therefore, South London College has put efforts on this Diploma in Care of Senior Pets – Level 3 to help your pets live the last few years in complete bliss. This training course is packed with intensive modules that will help you form a strong bond with your senior pets, and is the ideal course if you wish to get into or progress in the animal care or veterinary industry.

To support a senior pet, it is important to know when it reaches its old age. Therefore, this course will familiarise you with different pets and the ages they reach maturity. You will also get to understand the behavioural changes in senior pets, so that you can anticipate and pay special considerations for them.

Mobility and pain issues are common among senior pets. This guidance course will adequately cover these aspects of senior pet care, along with some advice on how to assist them during this challenging phase. This course will also address about cancer in senior pets to help you identify and treat it appropriately or to prepare you for the final goodbye when its time.

Diploma in Essential Cat and Kitten Care - Level 3

Although the idea of adopting a cat might sound like a nice idea, one has to really know how to groom and care for them to ensure their health and longevity. Therefore, South London College has introduced this Diploma in Cat and Kitten care- Level 3 to help you adequately care for your pet cats and kittens to ensure a loving and long lasting relationship with them. This program is mainly aimed at pet owners and pet sitters. However, professionals in the veterinary and animal care industry might also find this course worthwhile, provided they have a reognised qualification at level 2 or above in a related disciple to get started with this course.

This in-depth course will start off by advising you to choose your cat or kitten properly. The cat you choose should be healthy and active, so that you can take measures to maintain their health and other physical and emotional needs.

The cat your chose will not only need food. It will also need proper grooming, regular veterinary visits and specifically your affection and attention to lead a quality life. Therefore this course will also touch on these topics to further strengthen your knowledge on cat and kitten care, followed up by modules that will cover the communicating aspects of cat care to help you form a strong bond with them. This comprehensive course will also provide you insights into the behaviours of cats to understand what they mean and to treat them accordingly.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Global Edulink* has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
