Are you a professor of parrots, an expert in equine or a doyenne of dog grooming? Well a leading qualification creator would love to hear from you.
An influx in people looking to change their lives and work with animals has led to a search for experts who would like to teach qualifications, and share their knowledge and skills in their specialist field.
The awarding organisation iPET Network, which provides tailored qualifications for the Animal care and Veterinary sector, are looking for training providers in a number of key regions in the coming months to keep up with demand.
UK areas that the iPET Network is focussing on are:
– Country Durham
The Awarding Organisation is looking for people with specialisms in the Canine and Feline, Equine, Avian, Exotic, Small and Large Animal, Veterinary and Zoology to become training providers.
Sarah Mackay, who founded iPET Network with fellow animal-expert Fern Gresty, said: “The pandemic has really given people time to think about what they want to do with their lives, and we have seen a giant increase in interest for our qualifications.
“Such is the demand that we are actually looking to expand our list of training providers and we are calling on existing businesses and professionals to get in touch about offering these Ofqual regulated qualifications.”
iPET Network qualifications are designed by people who work within the industries they serve, and range from dog grooming, cat grooming, pet first aid, puppy socialisation, canine care, health and behaviour, responsible dog ownership, equine first aid and canine nutrition to name a few.
Sarah added: “These courses and qualifications are created by people who work within the industry, who believe how important it is to be qualified and offer the best and safest service for animals.
“We hope that more training providers will come on board soon, so that we can expand our reach and contribute even more to excellence within the industries we love so much.”
