These Ofqual regulated distance learning cat courses are for students who are looking for a career with cats or animal care professionals working with cats who would like to learn more about the behaviour and welfare of cats in their care. The student will gain a thorough grounding in feline care behaviour and welfare. All our distance learning courses are offered to students worldwide.
Most careers working with cats are hands-on, involving working in boarding or rescue catteries (as a cattery assistant or cattery manager). There are also jobs working as a cat groomer, cat sitter and cat behaviourist.
Most animal shelters have cattery accommodation and therefore hire cattery staff to assist with the cats in their care. Cats are often given up by owners for various reasons including: Owner moving, allergies, cost of caring for the cat, high veterinary bills, cat has kittens and owner can’t find homes for them, cat develops behavioural problems, cat killing birds/other small animals, etc. Whilst there are many neutering schemes in place, there are still people who don’t get their cat neutered or insist on breeding from them and therefore there are sadly too many cats and not enough good homes, hence most animal shelters have catteries full to capacity and rely on well trained staff and volunteers.
and also being able to complete it all at home was an extra bonus. My tutor Louise Robson was very quick to get back to any questions I had and at marking my assessments and getting them back to me. Also the comments were all very clear and helpful. All in all a very good and enjoyable course.
With the flexibility to fit around a very busy life and superb support from my tutor Louise Robson.
Thank you Louise I loved it so much I may be back to do another course soon.
I decided on this one because its cheaper and wasn’t sure i would be able to force myself to study. My tutor Lucy was a great help giving me support when I needed it. Its good to know that there just an email away. I would recomennd this site, its a great way to get some qualifications and learn new things
