In 2018 we invested over £100,000 in our Animal Management unit to expand the range of animals we can accommodate on campus. We currently house over 72 different species of animals.
We now have over 70 different species for students to gain hands-on practical skills.
Our animals include meerkats, skunks, marmoset monkeys, reptiles and an aviary housing a wide variety of birds. The majority of our animals have been rescued, students learn how to nurture and care for these animals in their new surroundings.
Our students have progressed to work in conservation, veterinary care, animal rescue, rehabilitation and wildlife sanctuaries, either as a result of them heading on to university following their studies with us or straight into employment after completion of their College programme.
During the past academic year our students benefitted from access to a wide range of trips and visits including Chester Zoo and the Yorkshire Wildlife Park, which was supported by guest lectures.
If you would like to progress to university in this field you can stay right here in Scunthorpe to study a HND/HNC in Animal Management.
I first started at North Lindsey College with a passion to work with animals. The animal management course helped me to realise my future within the animal industry and guided me towards becoming a veterinary nurse. The course and teaching staff were invaluable and encouraged me to pursue my education, attending university in order to achieve my qualification to become a veterinary nurse.
