This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the validation document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the Campus is closed TEC Partnership will continue to deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support. The BSc (Hons) in Animal Management Top-Up will develop students’ applied understanding how animals are presently managed and will encourage consideration to be placed on how practices may evolve in the future. Students will be challenged to evaluate the challenges that the animal care industry faces and how these can be overcome through the use of innovation. The programme will consider the sustainability of the wider animal management industry and aims to prepare individuals for the future world of animal management giving thought to evolving employment opportunities and advancements in both practice and technology within the industry. Focus will be given in reviewing the animal management industry from a business perspective and considering how it coordinates with other sectors such as leisure and tourism. Within the context of coordination of industries students will research and apply skills and knowledge to find solutions to effectively manage animal populations both within captivity and within the wider in-situ environment. The programme is designed to enable students to develop competencies in practices fundamental to maintaining the overall health and wellbeing of animals. Programme and module outcomes will provide an opportunity for students to gain opportunities to develop their employability within the animal management industry through undertaking work-based experience. Students will undertake independent research projects designed to develop individual competence in following lines of enquiry and interpreting information/data in order to make effective conclusions in line with an original problem or question set. Students will be encouraged to review how practices and technology will change to meet the needs of future generations and provide opportunities for students to develop the knowledge and skills required to work effectively and be of value to tomorrow’s animal care sector. Students will develop knowledge and understanding of how innovation drives the evolution of key areas within animal management such as veterinary medicine, in-situ and ex-situ wildlife conservation, animal rescue, animal behaviour and nutrition. Specifically, the programme will develop qualities, which will enable learners to be successful in careers demanding higher skills. The programme has been planned in close partnership with industry experts and through consultation with organisations within the animal care sector. As such the programme will meet the needs of industry and supply much needed candidates into an area which is highlighted as having a skills shortage. Our strong links with potential employers who provide a large proportion of work-based learning will give students a distinct advantage when it comes to gaining employment once graduate
