Leeds City College secures funding through Turing Scheme for students to undertake work placements in Botswana
Jack Anderson, Head of Land and Animal Science at Leeds City College, said: “We are delighted to offer students the opportunity to develop the knowledge and skills needed to work in a variety of industries including veterinary, tourism and hospitality.
“It is a prime opportunity for us to build long-term relationships with organisations such as Tuli, thereby strengthening our commitment to offering students a well-rounded education experience.
“Our courses cover multiple principles and practices of animal care across domestic animals, exotic animals and wildlife. Now, students will be able to put what they have learnt into practice and will be given a variety of tasks and activities to participate in including conservation work as well as eco-tourism related activities. This will help learners improve their communication and problem solving skills, as well as how to work within a team.
