A NEW exercise area and a place to pamper pooches are set to be created at Solihull College and University Centre ahead of the launch of a new T-Level.

The College has invested £600,000 in the Animal Welfare facilities to ensure it meets the needs of the Animal Care and Management starting in September 2024.

This investment. which has been funded by the Building and Facilities Improvement Grant from the T-Levels Capital Fund and the College, will focus on building state of the art dog grooming and handling areas featuring new equipment such as hydro baths, plus a new training and exercise area.

Professional dog grooming is increasingly becoming a skill which is in incredibly high demand, as are many industries based around animal ownership.

Head of school for Animal Welfare and Veterinary Nursing, Claire Powell, said: “The new facilities will continue to ensure the College is ahead of the game when it comes to animal welfare teaching and learning. This new T-Level will ensure our students are extremely well prepared when it comes to going out into the workplace.”

The College already boasts an sizable Animal Welfare Centre at Blossomfield Campus, featuring aquatics, reptiles, sheep, donkeys, meerkats, birds and more.

T-Levels are new two-year courses for school leavers that have been developed in collaboration with leading employers so that the content meets the needs of industry.

T-Levels combine classroom learning and a 45-day industry placement.
