The Animal Management faculty at Hadlow College has partnered with the Centre of Applied Pet Ethology (COAPE).

The venture will see Dr Robert Falconer-Taylor and Professor Peter Neville, both recognised animal behaviour experts, giving lectures and providing tutorial support.

Professor Neville said: “As a largely unregulated sector, successful animal behaviourists rely on high quality education and opportunities for further development. Since COAPE was established 25 years ago we have delivered a range of accredited and regulated qualifications and training courses to degree level that have fulfilled this.

“To now be partnered with Hadlow, a recognised expert in land-based teaching with a proven track record in animal studies, will allow us to develop these qualifications even further and ensure those that operate within the sector are as professionally skilled as they can be.”

Jessica Berry, Head of Faculty for Animal Management at Hadlow College, added: “The developments which we are making to our undergraduate qualifications this summer will provide students with some amazing opportunities from September.  With leading industry experts lecturing on the programmes, new facilities for practical handling and husbandry, and additional research opportunities, our programmes continue to provide real-life experiences and increase students’ career prospects.”
