Supporting you in your career in animal care and conservation.

Industry leading courses

With 10.9 million cats, 9.9 million dogs, and nearly a million rabbits* living with us at any one time, it’s plain to see that we are a nation of animal lovers. Pets are much more than just furry creatures that we welcome into our living space; they’re four-legged family members. That’s the reason why the UK spends in excess of £4 billion a year on pet care!

As a nation of animal lovers, preserving and protecting wildlife and ecosystems is something that many of us aspire to do. By studying a part-time course in environmental conservation at Petroc, you'll get the opportunity to gain essential knowledge and skills to make a positive impact to the planet, whether you dream of working in wildlife preservation, habitat restoration, or environmental advocacy.

At Petroc, we understand that life can sometimes get in the way of study, so we’ve developed a range of part-time educational programmes, that are perfect if you have existing work, study, or home life commitments.

So, whether you’re looking to completely change career direction, or just want to take on a new challenge - we’re here to help you go further in life.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone serious about learning to groom a dog.
