BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Horse Care – Equine Nursing Pathway

    Enrolments open for entry in March 2019

    March 2019 cohort Induction Study Week: 15th – 18th April 2019

    This programme combines the units from the BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Horse Care, with the addition of three specialist equine nursing modules comprising the TOCES Introductory Certificate: Equine Nursing Care Assistant.

     

    BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Horse Care

    This BTEC Level 2 Diploma is classified as a BTEC First; a QCF Level 2 qualification designed to provide a specialist work related qualification giving learners the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to prepare for employment. This qualification also provides career development opportunities for those already in work and can be studied full-time or part-time in school or from home.

    BTEC Firsts provide much of the underpinning knowledge and understanding for the National Occupational Standards for the sector. This Level 2 Diploma is recognised as a Technical Certificate and is recognised by employers. It is broadly equivalent to four GCSEs. On successful completion of a BTEC First qualification, learners can progress to or within employment and/or continue their study in the same, or related vocational area.

     

    TOCES Introductory Certificate: Equine Nursing Care Assistant

    This new TOCES certificate provides learners who aspire to enter the equine veterinary nursing industry with the additional underpinning knowledge to begin their career, and to learn more about the role of veterinary nurses. It is designed to introduce the learner to the fundamental principles of veterinary nursing practice, including:

    • Introduction to equine anatomy and physiology
    • The legal framework surrounding the veterinary profession
    • Infection control measures
    • How in-patients should be nursed within the equine hospital
    • Support of veterinary diagnostic processes
    • Introduction to surgical theatre practice
    • Introduction to the veterinary pharmacy

     

    Upon successful completion of this programme you will receive three certificates:

    1. BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Horse Care
    2. TOCES Introductory Certificate: Equine Nursing Care Assistant
    3. TOCES Level 2 Diploma in Horse Care (Equine Nursing Pathway)

     

    This level 2 course is designed to provide:

    • Education and training for those who seek entry into employment into the equine industry, and specifically into equine veterinary nursing
    • Opportunities for learners to gain a nationally recognised Level 2 vocationally related qualification to enter employment or progress to further education or training such as the BTEC Level 3 Diploma in Horse Management, City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Equine Pathway) or a similar related subject area
    • Information on the role of the horse carer and equine veterinary nurse, and the opportunities available within the industry locally and nationally
    • Opportunities for learners to focus on the development of Personal, Learning and Thinking Skills (PLTS) and Functional Skills
    • Opportunities for learners to develop a range of skills and techniques, personal qualities and attitudes essential for successful performance in working life

     

    It is ideal for those:

    • interested in becoming an equine veterinary nurse with no prior nursing experience
    • interested in horses and wanting to find out more about veterinary nursing
    • just starting out in a nursing career
    • learners in the early stage of their equine training aspiring to work, or already working with, horses either in a veterinary practice, welfare organisation or equestrian establishment
    • learners aspiring to train towards the City and Guilds Level 3 Diploma in Veterinary Nursing (Equine Pathway) – this programme can be used as an entry qualification for this route of study
    • whilst the majority of learners are likely to be of school-leaving age, this qualification will also be of interest to mature students seeking a new career opportunity
