Animal Management Extended Diploma Level 3 at Moulton College

Course description

This course aims to provide a general understanding of the practical and theoretical elements of animal management. Some modules included within the course are Understand and Promote Animal Health, Understand Animal Handling and Safe Working, Plan and Monitor Animal Feeding and Understand the Principles of Animal Biology. An integral part of the course is the completion of various additional qualifications which are designed to enhance future career opportunities.

Course content

Professional and vocational qualifications lead to accreditation, be it from an examining body, such as City & Guilds or Edexcel, or professional recognition, such as from Construction Skills or Lantra. The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) recognises vocational achievement through the attainment of credits for units of study and for whole qualifications. The smallest qualification is the Award, then the Certificate, and the largest is the Diploma, although there are other intermediate qualifications also available. The duration of study will typically reflect the size of the qualification.

Entry requirements

Five GCSEs at A*-C, including English, Maths and Science


Vocational and professional qualifications are taught through college based theory and practical lessons with further learning and understanding developed via directed self-study. Assessment consists of internally set coursework and assignments, although some professional and vocational qualifications may require the achievement of externally set assessments.

Future opportunities

Students generally progress onto a higher level of Animal Welfare course, move into a job with training (such as an apprenticeship) or move into full time employment.
