The Ministry of Defence Enhanced Learning Credits Scheme (ELC) is an initiative to encourage lifelong learning for members of the Armed Forces.
The scheme provides financial support (by means of an up-front payment) for higher level regulated qualifications (Level 3 and above).
We are approved by ELCAS to deliver the The ABC Awards Level 3 Certificate course in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals and the ABC Awards Level 3 Diploma course in Hydrotherapy for Small Animals.
These are Ofqual regulated qualifications designed for learners preparing for a career working as an Animal Hydrotherapist or in a Veterinary career utilising hydrotherapy as a treatment.
These courses meet the criteria for membership of the Canine Hydrotherapy Association (CHA) and the National Association of Registered Canine Hydrotherapists (NARCH).
Animal Hydrotherapists use hydrotherapy techniques to assist animals with rehabilitation in order to recover from injury, as an element of pain management or as a type of exercise for animals with mobility issues.
We have 2 regulated qualifications approved for ELCAS funding, and will be adding more in the near future. Please visit the ELCAS website and click on the 'Learning Providers' button and then "Learning Provider Search'. Search for Animal Jobs Direct and the courses and packages will be shown in the approved list. Please do contact us for assistance or advice.
Completion of one of these regulated qualifications, will enable you to seek employment as an Animal Hydrotherapist; there is a shortage of qualified animal hydrotherapists.
Or alternatively, you could set up your own Animal Hydrotherapy business and work for yourself.
We will assist you all the way, whether it's finding a job or setting up your own animal hydrotherapy business.
