Hi, Is anyone doing the vet assistant course? Just wondering if it is accepted on its own as a qualification to becoming a vet assitant, or is there more work to be done after? Thanks

You all need to contact them at Stonebridge directly. I am sure they will be very helpful, as they have always been with me in the past. (I haven't been on in a long time due to illness, so I didn't know about this new course till now). I quite fancy it myself :)

I am studying a NCFE Level 3 Award in Animal Care . I have previously completed a one month work experience placement at a vets. I would highly recommended doing this course, to complement the Vet Assistant Course. All vets require you to demonstrate knowledge, of different types of small pets.

It looks an interesting course, would it actually make you more employable to a veterinary practise though? what with there being no practical?

I have completed the Veterinary support assistant course and got a distinction, i enjoyed it very much. The course was exciting about the nursing side to euthanised bit that was sad! At least you get to see what happens in a veterinary assistants role, to take on board to get a career out of it. 10/10 course, hope to do another animal related course. :) all the best everyone who is in the middle of it!

Hello all,
I have just enrolled on the veterinary assisstant course and have a couple of questions.
Firstly I am doing the paper version and it would be lovely if somebody could let me know what course materials will come in my delivery, so I know what I need to buy.
Also, there are no books on the course reading lists for this course, but does anybody have a book they reccomend?
Very nervous about starting but also very exited. So any advice or response would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks x

Just imagine you are reading a newspaper article and how they start off. You need to be engaging from the first couple of sentences. Hope this helps if you haven't already done it but you probably have by now lol.
