We are inviting candidates who have completed their Level 2 Diploma in Animal Care to come and join us to study for the work-based Level 3 diploma. Mayhew works in partnership with KEITS one of the UK’s premier private training providers for work-based qualifications. The Level 3 Diploma is a hands-on learning experience, with no days at college; the assessor meets the students here at Mayhew where they set targets, observe student’s work and help them put together evidence of learning. Students are also well supported by the team they work with. The diploma covers work with both dogs and cats, and students spend equal time in each section.
What can you expect? The work is very rewarding but it can be both physically and emotionally demanding. You will be working in all weathers and be getting dirty. Your work will involve cleaning kennels and cat cabins, socialising with the animals, walking dogs and making notes about the behaviour of the animals. You will be assisting with feeding, learning about how a rescue centre runs behind the scenes, working alongside other students, volunteers and staff.
What do you get in return? After successfully completing an unpaid trial period of 4 weeks you will be enrolled onto the Level 3 work-based diploma in Animal Care course. If you qualify for an apprenticeship Mayhew will pay all of your course fees; you will receive £7 per hour and be issued a fixed term contract for the duration of the course (approximately 18 months). You will also be given plenty of support and study time.
We are looking for the successful candidate to start in the first week of August 2019.
