January seems to have flown by at the blink of an eye! We are full steam ahead into the New Year and a new decade, with some exciting developments and events to share with you.

Advancements within our Animal Care qualifications

Level 2 Certificate in Equine Hydrotherapy is the newest qualification being developed in line with industry standards to join the Animal Care suite later this year, with centre onboarding sessions taking place over the next few months.

In addition to this, the Level 2 Award and Certificate in Animal Nursing Assistants is being re-developed and updated in line with current industry best practice.

We will be looking for centres and industry specialists to take part in our onboarding sessions in the development of both of these qualifications. Our face to face consultative events allow centres the opportunity to provide feedback on proposed changes and discuss the qualification in detail with fellow tutors, assessors, examiners and specialists prior to the qualification going live for registrations.

To find out more about our onboarding events for these qualifications, and how to get involved, please email Ryan, Senior Development and Delivery Manager on ryang@skillsedugroup.co.uk or call him on 0115 753 1714.

We are Patron Sponsors to the Skills and Education Group Conference and Awards

The annual Skills and Education Group Conference is in its 12th year, and it is looking like 2020 will be its best year yet! The focus of this year’s conference is to look at the current landscape of further education, giving you the opportunity to hear from leading voices within the sector and participate in a range of interactive workshops.

For the first time, the Skills and Education Group will be recognising achievements of organisations, staff and learners in the further education and skills sector through their Awards evening.
