Duchy College VisitPosted on: 13/01/2023
Our year 11 animal care students have spent time recently at Duchy College, Rosewarne. They have been learning how to handle donkeys and goats for a practical handling assignment. They had to handle and use restraint equipment on large animals. They also went to see the Ark where small animals are kept and birds are bred for Bristol Zoo Conservation project. One group also managed to sneak in a cuddle with micro ferrets!
Students experienced the importance of correct PPE and restraining donkeys and goats using lead ropes and harnesses for grooming and exercise, they walked them around the paddock and learnt about the importance of good hygiene, organization and storage when working in the animal industry. Finally, they were able to ask questions about level 3 land based courses and future careers.
