There is a course available through TOCES to suit all levels from basic level through to degree level, whether you are a happy hacker or pony owning parent or are aspiring for a complete change of career, perhaps into veterinary nursing or equine therapeutics.

Veterinary Nursing and Physiotherapy courses are delivered by TOCES

Many students often already work in veterinary practice in administration or support roles and wish to train to further their career. The Level 3 Equine Veterinary Nursing programme works very well for busy practices, as students are able to continue in full-time employment while completing their studies through blended learning.

Veterinary nursing students are required to attend eight study weeks at the college to supplement their theoretical knowledge with clinical training and assessment.

Study weeks also form part of the syllabus for the equine physiotherapy and equine sports massage courses, where students gain hands-on experience and have their practical skills taught and assessed.

Although hard work, study weeks are also great fun and provide an opportunity to get to know other students on the same course.

A number of specialist short courses such as first aid or equine nutrition are ideal for those wanting to focus on a particular subject without committing to a full course.

TOCES offers students a great learning experience where they have access to full tutor and administrative support throughout their course, which has gained the college a reputation for having a friendly and personal approach with students.

TOCES courses are recognised by leading organisations and industry bodies, including the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS), the Register for Animal Musculoskeletal Practitioners (RAMP), the British Horse Society (BHS), Lantra, City and Guilds (C & G), Pearson (Edexcel – BTEC) and the Accreditation Committee for Veterinary Nurse Education (ACOVENE).
